Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s® 2018
100% of money raised will support New Jersey individuals and families.
Over 600,000 people in New Jersey are affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia, including 175,000 individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Funds raised through our walk support our programs and services such as Helpline, Care Consultations, the Respite Care and Wellness program, Family Support Groups, Always Safe®, and Clinical Trial Connections®. New Jersey residents rely on Alzheimer’s New Jersey® for personal and confidential assistance, guidance, relief from caregiving, emotional support and education, safety awareness, and clinical trial opportunities as they face the emotional and financial challenges of Alzheimer’s disease that can often be overwhelming. Funds raised through Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s support these programs and services. We need your support. Register today!

2017 Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s Event Photos
We want to recognize the following Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s® participants each of whom declined the 2017 Incentive Prize he/she earned through Walk fundraising and, instead, generously donated the prize value to our Respite Care and Wellness Program. These donations will enable us to expand the number of respite scholarships that we distribute in 2018. Our Respite Care and Wellness Program is designed to provide family caregivers with information and education about the importance of regular time-off from caregiving, and help link them to available community-based respite care resources. We also provide a financial scholarship of $1,000 to help support the cost of respite care services.
