Help find a cure for Alzheimers and give elders and their caregivers better quality of life.

Cognitive disorders are often a major reason we lose independence as we age. These diseases also profoundly impact caregivers, who are frequently family members.

Alzheimer’s disease, the most well-known of cognitive disorders, is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

Walk With Us

Why This Walkathon?


Rotarians are people of ACTION.  We exist to be of service, supporting clean water, food security, medical care, and other basic needs. 

Join in supporting this fundraiser and join us in making a difference in fighting dementia and supporting much-needed care.

Dementia is a defining challenge of our time. Meeting challenges is what we do. This marathon is our way of making a difference and of putting our values into results.
