Walk to End Alzheimer’s® looked different this year, but our supporters have truly stepped up across the state to keep fighting back against Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. We are so proud of Georgia, and we can’t thank you enough for your support.
Even though walk day is over, fundraising continues. Donations for the 2020 Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be accepted through December 31, and we need your help to reach our statewide goal for 2020.
To keep up our momentum, we are excited to announce a new challenge! Today through November 30, anyone who raises or donates an additional $300 for a local walk will earn an exclusive Georgia Walk to End Alzheimer’s long sleeve t-shirt. There’s no better way to show your Georgia pride and your commitment to fight Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.
If you haven’t participated in Walk to End Alzheimer’s yet this year, take the first step now by registering at georgiawalk.org You can create your own private Walk Day by watching your local opening ceremony online and tracking your steps with our Walk to End Alzheimer’s mobile app . It’s easy to log in to your Participant Center to connect a Facebook fundraiser, ask your friends and family for their support, and check your fundraising progress.
If you have walked with us this fall, we are so grateful for the steps you’ve already taken to fund Alzheimer’s research, care and support! In addition to the exclusive state t-shirt up for grabs through November 30, you can earn fundraising incentive prizes through December 31 starting at the $300 level!
