The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and much-needed funds. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s is held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide. The Atlanta Walk to End Alzheimers takes place on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
