Senior Star Is Walking to End Alzheimer’s Disease This Fall


At Senior Star we are proud to offer you the opportunity to join us as we participate in this fall’s worldwide Walk to End Alzheimer’s—and you don’t even have to lace up your shoes. Just by supporting a Senior Star team in your area, you can make a difference in the lives of those affected by this devastating disease.

Senior Star associates make up the 3rd highest fundraising team in the nation. And every dollar raised by the Walk to End Alzheimer’s benefits those affected by Alzheimer’s disease in your community.

What is the Walk to End Alzheimer’s?

Held annually September and October in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is world’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s disease care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against this disease, which plays a devastating role in the lives of so many:

  • An estimated 55 million people worldwide are living with dementia
  • In the United States alone, more than 6 million have Alzheimer’s disease, and over 11 million are providing unpaid care 
  • Alzheimer’s disease kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined
  • One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia

What the flowers symbolize. Across the nation, the Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is full of flowers, each carried by someone committed to finding a cure. Because, as the Alzheimer’s Association states, like flowers, participants don’t stop when something’s in their way. They keep raising funds and awareness for a breakthrough in the fight against Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.

  • Blue: Someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.
  • Purple: An individual who has lost someone to the disease.
  • Yellow: A person who is currently supporting or caring for someone living with Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Orange: A participant who supports the cause and the Association’s vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia.
