Alzheimer’s Association to hold Rolla Walk to End Alzheimer’s in person
The Alzheimer’s Association is moving forward with plans to host the Rolla Walk to End Alzheimer’s in person on Saturday, Aug. 28. The health and safety of all participants remains the top priority as decisions are being made in all walk markets regarding event details. In addition to planning the in-person event, the Alzheimer’s Association will continue to offer options to participate in Walk to End Alzheimer’s online and in your neighborhood.
Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need assistance and guidance now more than ever, and with community support, the Alzheimer’s Association will continue to be there for them, in person and virtually.
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s was recently ranked as the second largest fundraising event in the country by total revenue. The Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum released its annual rankings of the top 30 national fundraising events by total revenue. Despite the changes to this event due to the pandemic, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s raised more than $67 million last year in more than 600 participating communities across the country. The money raised by Walk funds Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs.
