What you can do

Taking Strides for Dementia.

Volunteers have made the walk & run possible since its beginnings in 1990. For 30 years, we have relied upon committed individuals who donate their time and energy each year on Thanksgiving Sunday. We couldn't do it without them!

In 2021 our event will look very different because of COVID-19. Without our usual event infrastructure - venue, race routes, registration tables, food and beverage stations to name a few - we won't be able to offer the same volunteer positions this year.

We will confirm all information in advance of your chosen volunteer shift. Thank you for your understanding.
