Memory Walk: Taking Steps to End Alzheimer’s

The Alzheimer’s Association’s Memory Walk is a national event to help those battling Alzheimer’s and related diseases. The event raises public awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and generates funds for local services for people with Alzheimer’s and related diseases, their families and their caregivers.

The Association holds walks throughout Minnesota and North Dakota each fall. There is no fee to walk, though walkers are encouraged to ask friends, family, colleagues and their community to support their efforts with donations.

Remembering Our Stars Gala

The Alzheimer’s Association’s annual spring gala raises funds to support the many programs and services of the Association, and it is also a time to celebrate the lives of loved ones with Alzheimer’s and related diseases. Each year, more than 500 friends of the Association gather together for this fun evening.

Mind Mixer

The Mind Mixer was developed in response to the Alzheimer's Association's focus on brain health through its Maintain Your Brain® campaign. The campaign focuses on what people can do today to possibly help reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

A Round to Remember™

Swing your clubs for the cause!

It's time to play A Round to Remember™ in honor of the more than 5 million Americans who are living with Alzheimer's. Ask friends and colleagues to join you in a game of golf and make a donation to the Alzheimer's Association. Get started with our easy steps below.

Get started now

Set a date and location for your foursome — or several foursomes — to play. Then set a fundraising goal for your golf event and suggest contribution amounts. Here are some ideas:
  • Each golfer makes a donation of $25 or more for every hole under par.
  • For an 18-hole round, each golfer contributes $25, $50, $100 or more.
  • Plan contests at your event — hole-in-one, putting, longest drive, closest to the pin, lowest score. Ask a local business to donate the prizes.

Extend invitations

Call your foursome, send them an e-mail, or download our invitation. Use your words or ours.
