We are excited to announce the Alzheimer’s Association as the Rotary Action Group’s newest strategic partner! We are grateful the Rotary Action Group has chosen to support the Alzheimer's Association's Walk to End Alzheimer's, the world's largest fundraising event for Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias. We share a vision of a world without Alzheimer's and we are inviting all Rotarians to walk with us in solidarity in more than 600 communities across the country. Why We Walk: We are Rotarians, Rotaractors and Interactors that have extensive leadership experience around Alzheimer’s including Alzheimer's education, patient care, prevention management, research for a cure and strategic partnership. Last year more than 80 different Rotary teams walked and fundraised over $80,000, so for 2019 we are launching a special online Rotary Walk team page that all Rotary Walk teams across the country can use to register for your local Walks! To register: Visit, simply click "start a team" and please use the word "Rotary" and the town or district your club represents in the team name. If you have already registered for a local Walk event this season, please contact either me and I will work to affiliate your existing team under our Rotary umbrella.
