You can make it happen ... a world without Alzheimer's disease.

Our volunteers are passionate, inspired and want to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Whether you can spare a few hours a week or can make a more significant time commitment, please consider becoming an Alzheimer's Association volunteer.

Walk to End Alzheimer's®

Come walk with us! Alzheimer's Association Walk is the world's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support and research. Local Association offices need volunteers who can help plan, promote and work the day of the event. You can also form a walking team of family, friends or co-workers.

The Longest Day®

The Longest Day is all about love. Love for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease. On the summer solstice, team up with the Alzheimer’s Association and select any activity you love — or an activity loved by those affected — to help end Alzheimer’s. Start or join a team, host an event, or register as an individual. Choose the way that works best for you!

Join the fight by starting or joining a team today >>
