They are moving forward with plans to host the Walk to End Alzheimer's in person this fall. They are planning every Walk with the health and safety of their constituents, staff and volunteers as their top priorities. All events will implement safety protocols including physical distancing, masks (where required), contactless registration, hand sanitizing stations and more. They will continue to closely monitor Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local guidelines to ensure Walk events adhere to recommendations and are safe for attendees.
General Information
Where do the funds go?
All funds raised through Walk to End Alzheimer's further the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. The Alzheimer's Association is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Do I have to register in order to Walk?
Yes, they want to know you're walking with them and need every participant to sign a standard waiver through their official registration. There is no registration fee for Walk. However, they ask every participant to make a personal donation and commit to raising funds in the fight against Alzheimer's.
Do I need to register my children for Walk?
Yes, children should register. Parents/guardians can register children online or complete an offline registration form and sign the waiver on behalf of the child.
Does every participant get a T-shirt?
Every registered participant who achieves the fundraising minimum of $100 will receive an official Walk to End Alzheimer's T-shirt via USPS. To receive a shirt in time for Walk day, participants must raise the T-shirt minimum at least four weeks prior to the event.
How do I get my offline donations to show up on my personal fundraising web page?
Donations can be made offline by submitting a check or money order by mail or hand-delivering to the local Alzheimer's Association office. Be sure to include your offline donation form, which can be found in your Participant Center or on your fundraising web page, to make sure you receive credit for the donation. Donations typically take one to two weeks to show up on your web page. Don't want to wait? You can also deposit checks directly to your Walk page from the Walk to End Alzheimer's mobile app for iPhone or Android.
Event Specifics
Will there be COVID-19 safety measures in place at Walk?
The health and safety of their participants, staff and volunteers are their top priorities. Walk events will be designed with this in mind including a venue layout that allows for physical distancing, hand sanitizer stations, contactless registration and more. The Association will continue to closely monitor Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local guidelines and make adjustments to their event-day safety protocols as needed.
Are pets, strollers, bicycles and skates allowed on Walk day?
They do allow strollers, but for everyone's safety, they discourage skateboards, bicycles, inline skates and wheelie footwear. Depending on the Walk location rules, well-behaved dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash at all times.
What happens if it rains?
Walk is a rain or shine event. However, in the case of severe weather, they will cancel. If this is the case, they will update their Walk homepage on or before the morning of the event.
They need volunteers! Know anyone who might be interested in helping us on the day of the event?
They need volunteers to help with set-up, clean-up, registration, water stops, Promise Garden and so much more. All interested volunteers should visit their volunteer page for more information about event day roles and responsibilities.
