Alzheimer’s New Jersey’s Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s raises funds for the organization’s education and support programs benefiting Bergen County residents and New Jersey families. These programs include care consultations, family support groups, 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 fee to register. However, fundraising is encouraged and vital to the success of the event. The first 1000 registered walkers will receive a promotional tote bag and walkers who raise $50 or more will receive a complimentary event T-shirt.
“Alzheimer’s New Jersey has been hosting the walk in Paramus for 17 years. Last year we raised over $185,000 with 110 walk teams and our goal is to raise more this year. I thank everyone who has helped to make this walk a big success and I encourage you 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.”
