Why: Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your support, we can continue to be there for them. Every dollar you raise through Walk to End Alzheimer’s allows the Alzheimer’s Association® to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research.

More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease – the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 11 million family members and friends provide care to people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In Iowa alone, there are more than 66,000 people living with the disease and 73,000 caregivers.
