2015 Alzheimer Walk to Remember
25.00 for registration & a shirt 15.00 for just walk
We are looking forward to a wonderful 2015 Walk as we celebrate its 23rd anniversary in our community! Your part helps make it possible for us to continue and expand the educational and support services to local Alzheimer victims, their caregivers, and family members.
At our annual event, walkers participate in their choice of a 1-mile, 3-mile or 5-mile route in memory or in honor of Alzheimer patients, caregivers, family and friends. Many participate as part of a team, wearing identical t-shirts and making the event a party. Others walk as individuals, part of a family, or with their pets. Participants soon find that it is more than just a walk to benefit Alzheimer’s. Local eateries donate wonderful barbecue, dessert treats, juices and more. Other businesses participate by donating door prizes that make the event seem like a celebration.
Wondering how to participate in A Walk to Remember? There are lots of ways!
1. Be a sponsor
2. Form a team and walk or just take up donations. (You don't have to walk.)
3. Walk as an individual
4. Prefer not to walk in the event? Volunteers are always welcome to help with behind the scenes activities!

Caitie’s Army was inspired by Caitie Rhodes of Andalusia, who was diagnosed and treated for brain cancer at Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham. Touched by her story, organizers hold activities and events to raise funds that support The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s. Last year, the ride raised more than $8,000 for childhood cancer research and to help families like Caitie’s. Caitie will turn 24 this year and has now transitioned to adult care at UAB.
