About the HopeHealth Walk for Alzheimer’s

The HopeHealth Walk for Alzheimer’s is an extraordinary event sustained by ordinary people. For over 25 years, the Walk has generated thousands of dollars through individual contributions a powerful demonstration of neighbors caring for the people in the community.

The Walk brings together people from many different communities and cultures—and attracts parents, kids, students and corporations. Everyone comes to offer hope to people dealing with the hardships of having a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease and to support the programs that help those living with the disease, their caregivers, healthcare professionals and community agencies.

Alzheimer’s disease is a fatal, degenerative disease of the brain that slowly diminishes a person’s ability to reason, remember, respond to the environment, and carry out the most basic tasks.

The HopeHealth Walk for Alzheimer’s has been a tradition for over 25 years. It is the principal fundraiser for Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services. Thanks to the compassionate support of donors like you, Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services is able to provide an array of programs and services to meet the needs of the community we serve. These programs include caregiver needs assessment and care planning, education, support groups, telephone helpline, respite grants, and memory screenings.
