Walkers who raise money are eligible for gifts such as shirts, ties, and bracelets from the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter. 

Walkers can register on-site, but are strongly urged to register in advance.

The Walk has something to offer the whole family, with live entertainment, a “Kid’s Korner” activity area for children, and a Doggie Dugout for the four-legged walkers.  A special “Memory Wall” will be constructed in Riverside Park where Walk participants can post mementos, messages or photos of someone in their lives they have cared for, or who is currently affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

TO REGISTER, BECOME AN OFFICIAL EVENT SPONSOR, VOLUNTEER OR MAKE A DONATION: Call the 24-hour helpline at 800-272-3900 or e-mail [email protected] or visit alznyc.org/walk.
