Chicago Walk to End Alzheimer's

The Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s is a united movement to reclaim the future for millions. Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on Sunday September 28th at Montrose Harbor. More than 4,000 people from the Chicagoland area are expected at this year’s event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's participants will participate in a 5K and will learn more about Alzheimer's disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical trial enrollment, and support programs and services of the Alzheimer’s Association. Each walker will also join in a meaningful tribute ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease.

The end of Alzheimer’s disease starts here. Start or join a team today at or call 847-933-2413.
