A secondary goal is to help improve Alzheimer’s facilities, making them a place where families feel their loved ones will be cared for with compassion.
The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s™ is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research.
Since 1989, this all age, all-ability walk has mobilized millions to join the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, raising more than $347 million for the cause. Events are held annually in the fall in nearly 600 communities nationwide.
Walk Distance: Join hundreds of Walk To End Alzheimer's participants for a 2.2 mile walk through the beautiful UTA campus.
Walk Route: The walk begins at the Maverick Activities Center. The route is scenic, flat, and wheelchair accessible.
Walk Day Activities: Registration, a short opening ceremony, t-shirt contest and other fun activities will take place before we walk.
Team T-Shirt Contest: Design and create your own team shirt to enter in our contest. The winning team will receive a plaque and bragging rights for a year! (Teams are responsible for all costs related to making their shirts.)
Shirt Bibs: 'Walking in honor/memory of' shirt bibs and safety pins will be available before the Walk. Participants are also encouraged to make their own shirt bibs or carry signs to honor or remember those for whom they walk.
Booths: Come early to visit our sponsors booths before the Walk.
Parking: The parking lot is located off of Greek Row Drive near Kerby Street, just west of Neddderman. Alternate parking is located at UTA Blvd and Nedderman Dr. (Be sure to walk around to the back side of the Mavericks Activity Center, towards the tennis courts.)
Restrooms: There are restrooms located in the MAC as well as along the walk route.
Dogs: Dogs are permitted on a leash at the walk. Due to the large amount of people and the unknown disposition of dogs that may be in attendance, the Alzheimer's Association cannot be responsible for the safety of your pet. Please bring the appropriate materials to clean up after your pet.
