Event Specifics

Do I have to register in order to Walk? 
Yes, we want to know you’re walking with us and need every walker to sign a standard waiver through their official registration. There is no registration fee for Walk. However, we ask every walker to make a personal donation and commit to raising funds in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Everyone who registers for the Prescott Walk to End Alzheimer’s either the day of the Walk or prior to the Walk will receive one of our Promise Garden flowers.

Do I need to register my children for Walk? 
Yes, children should register. Parents/guardians can register children online or complete an offline registration form and sign the waiver on behalf of the child. Everyone who registers for the Prescott Walk to End Alzheimer’s either the day of the Walk or prior to the Walk will receive one of our Promise Garden flowers.

Are pets, strollers, bicycles, and skates allowed on Walk day? 
We do allow strollers, but for everyone’s safety, we discourage skateboards, bicycles, inline skates and wheelie footwear. Well-behaved dogs are welcome but must be on a leash at all times. Stop by the Pet Registration table to register your pet and receive a special treat. 

What happens if it rains? 
The walk is a rain or shine event. However, in the case of severe weather, we will cancel. If this is the case, we will update our Walk homepage on or before the morning of the event.

Does every walker get a T-shirt? 
T-shirts will be available for pick up on Walk day or at one of our Fast Pass Nights. Keep an eye out for the Fast Pass information email or look for the dates listed under News and Announcements here. Do you need help raising $100? We can help you with that, download fundraising tips on “How to Raise $100 Fast” here.

How do I get a Promise Garden flower? 
Each registered walker will receive a Promise Garden flower. Please choose the color that best represents your connection to the disease.

  • Blue represents someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia
  • Purple is for someone who has lost a loved one to the disease.
  • Yellow represents someone who is currently supporting or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s.
  • Orange is for everyone who supports the cause and vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.

After you receive your flower, stop by the dedication table or plant it in the Promise Garden. 

Where do the funds go? 
All funds raised through the Prescott Walk to End Alzheimer’s further the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association Desert Southwest Chapter and will help to support the individuals affected by Alzheimer’s is Central Arizona. The Alzheimer’s Association is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

How do I get my offline donations to show up on my personal fundraising Web page? 
Donations can be made offline by submitting a check or money order by mail or hand-delivering to the local northern Arizona Alzheimer’s Association office at 3111 Clearwater Drive, Suite A, Prescott, AZ 86305. Be sure to include your offline donation form, which can be found in your Participant Center or on your fundraising Web page, to make sure you receive credit for the donation. Donations typically take 1-2 weeks to show up on your Web page.

We need volunteers! Know anyone who might be interested in helping us on the day of the event? 
We need volunteers to help with set-up, clean-up, registration, water stops, promise garden, the T-shirt tent and so much more. All interested volunteers should visit our volunteer page for more information about event day roles and responsibilities. Volunteer responsibilities are still open!
