20th Anniversary Celebration: 
The Smoky Mountain community has pulled together to support families facing Alzheimer’s for 20 years. Alzheimer’s Tennessee remembers those who have been candles lighting the way, and we are relying on the James Rogers song “Find the Way” to help honor those special individuals during this anniversary celebration. The late Alma Curtis and her sister Blanche Gulyash, Dr. Joe Copeland, and Grant Cantwell all demonstrated outstanding leadership for Alzheimer's Tennessee, shining a light on Alzheimer's disease, the need for services and research, as well as the impact it has on families.

We hope you will be “a torch of hope” going forward - lighting the way for families in the Smokies touched by Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s Tennessee appreciates those who have given – and helped others give – for the past two decades. We hope you will join us – and invite others who have been a part of this event in the past.

The Smoky Mountain Alzheimer’s WALK is a Saturday morning filled with Celebration! Participants and volunteers from Sevier, Cocke, Hamblen and Jefferson counties find live musical entertainment, free food, door prizes, and fun for all ages. Even pets are included! The WALK is symbolic and optional and the distance is approximately 1 ½ miles.

Team Up & WALK!

Teams
are the heart of what makes Alzheimer’s WALK so successful. Families, businesses, churches, organizations and school groups build teams to honor those who have been touched by
Alzheimer’s.
 

Team captains and co-captains are the volunteer leaders who build
excitement and help teams meet their fundraising goals. They motivate and encourage co-workers, friends and family to join their team and work to promote Alzheimer’s WALK

 
Volunteer
 
Help on WALK day in your community! We count on volunteers to help set up, clean up, take photos, plus register, feed, and direct WALKers. You'll find the option to volunteer under each WALK registration type.
 
Way to go!
