Individuals, families, local businesses and organizations are invited to participate by registering online at www.alznj.org. Donations can be made online as well.
Alzheimer’s New Jersey’s Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s raises funds for the organization’s education and support programs benefiting Morris County residents and New Jersey families. These programs include care consultations, family support groups, community education programs, the Alzheimer’s New Jersey telephone Helpline, the Respite Care and Wellness Program, and the Clinical Trial Connections® program. Last year, these programs benefited 14,000 New Jersey residents.
There is no registration fee. However, fundraising is encouraged and vital to the success of the event. The first 500 registered walkers will receive a promotional tote bag and walkers who raise $50 or more will receive a complimentary event T-shirt.
“This is the second year that we have hosted our walk at the College of St. Elizabeth. Last year, we raised over $100,000 with 39 walk teams. This year our goal is to raise even more. I thank everyone who helped to make last year’s walk a big success and invite them to join us again.” says Ken Zaentz, President and CEO of Alzheimer’s New Jersey. “As the number of families impacted by Alzheimer’s continues to grow in New Jersey, the help of the local community is more important than ever. Join the fight against this terrible disease and register today. Bring family and friends. Form a team. Donate. When you walk with Alzheimer’s New Jersey - 100% of funds raised will benefit New Jersey families.”
Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s is a fun-filled family event for people of all ages and backgrounds. Please visit www.alznj.org to register or donate and learn more about Alzheimer’s New Jersey programs.
