The 2020 Summer Olympics are getting ready to start later this month in Tokyo, but now is your chance to GO FOR GOLD. Register for one the Walk to End Alzheimer’s events taking place across North Carolina this fall. From July 15 through August 5, with three easy actions as a Walk Team captain, you can earn your gold medal.
Bronze medal = Register to start a Walk team
Silver medal = Add 2 other people to your team
Gold medal = Add $50 or more to your team fundraising total
All gold medal team captains will be awarded a Walk to End Alzheimer’s Mountain Marble silicone pint glass — perhaps like the athletes used on Mount Olympus! (They had silicone back then, right? 😉)
To help you reach gold, here’s some tools to check out:
- Share our new Walk Video and invite people to join your team.
- Fundraising Ideas – A to Z
- Start a Walk Facebook Fundraiser
WE ALL HAVE A REASON TO FIGHT FOR A WORLD WITHOUT ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE. Join your local Walk to End Alzheimer’s today.
The Alzheimer’s Association hosts 17 walks across North Carolina. The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Since 1989, the Alzheimer’s Association® mobilized millions of Americans in the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk®; now the Alzheimer’s Association is continuing to lead the way with Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s.
We’re moving forward with plans to host the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® in person this fall. We are planning every Walk with the health and safety of our constituents, staff and volunteers as our top priorities. All events will implement safety protocols including physical distancing, masks (where required), contactless registration, hand sanitizing stations and more. We 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, as well as offer options to participate online and in your neighborhood.
