Memory Walk is the Alzheimer's Association’s national signature event to help those coping with Alzheimer's and related diseases. Since 1989, the nation's largest event supporting Alzheimer's care and support services has raised more than $200 million.

This fall, the Association held 12 Memory Walks to raise both awareness of Alzheimer’s and related diseases and funds for dementia programs and services in Minnesota and North Dakota. Thank you to everyone who participated as a walker, donor or volunteer.

Though the walks were successful, your help is still needed to meet our goal. Funds raised at Memory Walk support programs including the 24/7 helpline, support groups and education programs, so every dollar counts! If you were a walker, consider making an additional gift or contacting friends, family, neighbors or colleagues who didn’t give to ask for a donation. If you didn’t walk, there’s still time to make a personal gift or ask friends or family to support the Association! Consider forming a “virtual” team by visiting the Memory Walk Web sites below.

Every dollar moves us closer to a world without Alzheimer's.
Together, we can MOVE a nation!
