Fighting Alzheimer’s with every step

The Illinois Chapter was fortunate to have a wonderful Walk to End Alzheimer’s® season this year, hosting 27 Walks throughout Illinois and raising more than $4 million for critical Alzheimer’s care, support and research efforts. The success of our Walk events is heavily reliant on participation. This year alone, more than 20,000 people participated in Walk to End Alzheimer’s events across the state.We are so grateful to all of our participants, volunteers, donors, committee members, sponsors and all those who support our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s® for helping us create another successful Walk season. We hope you will continue to raise critical funds that benefit our research and education efforts as well as invaluable care and support services.
