Alzheimer’s New Jersey’s Annual “Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s®” in Paramus

Alzheimer’s New Jersey, formerly known as the Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Jersey Chapter, kicks off its “Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s” event this fall at locations in Ocean, Hudson, Mercer and Bergen Counties. The walk is the largest event for the organization to raise awareness and funds to support local programs for those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias in New Jersey. One hundred percent of the funds raised by Alzheimer’s New Jersey support Garden State individuals and families. 

Alzheimer’s New Jersey is a nonprofit organization not affiliated with a national charity whose mission is to provide support, assistance and information to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia and their caregivers in New Jersey.

Each event starts at 8:30 a.m. with registration and light breakfast. T-shirts will be distributed to all participants who raise a minimum of $50. There is no fee to register.

Walk to Fight Alzheimer's teams are made up of families, friends, and co-workers who come together to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's New Jersey programs and services, as well as research. Corporate, company and individual sponsorships are welcome. Last year the walks raised more than $750,000 and Alzheimer’s New Jersey expects some 10,000 walkers this year.
