More than 80,000 Kentuckians have Alzheimer's, the disease without a cure.

Please walk with us on September 8 to help find a cure for Alzheimer's and to provide services for those facing the disease. We walk to share our story of living with Alzheimer's and join together to raise awareness and funds. We walk to honor and remember those we have lost. We walk because we have the power to make a difference and to fight back. We walk so future generations won't have to face Alzheimer's.

Please visit www.alz.org/kyin to sign up as an individual walker, or to register your team to raise funds on behalf of the Alzheimer's Association.

The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s™ is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s unites the entire community — family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more --- in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease. While there is no fee to register, each participant is expected to fundraise in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness. The Alzheimer’s Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help each participant reach their fundraising goal.

When you participate in Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission-related initiatives of care, support and research. In addition, your actions, both through fundraising and participating in the event, help to change the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in your community. At a Walk event, you can learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and the support programs and services offered by your local chapter. You will also have unique opportunities to get involved with the cause through advocacy initiatives and clinical trial enrollment. These experiences, in addition to other on-site opportunities, help each participant connect to their reason for walking.
