This is why we walk: At the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, we’re fighting for a different future. For families facing the disease today. For more time. For treatments. We’re closer than ever to stopping Alzheimer’s. But to get there, we need you. Join us for the world’s largest fundraiser to fight the disease.

PT@acac's Outreach Coordinator, Ryan Gray (ryang@acacpt.com), is taking point on organizing PT@acac's walk team.

"PT@acac team members who officially register to join the team for the walk we will receive a special Physical Therapy @ ACAC Walk to End Alzheimerss team T shirt," says Ryan "but to receive a special team t-shirt, you must have registered by Wednesday October 11."

"For anyone who wants to bring a friend or family member they must register for the event as well," Ryan continues. "Make sure you let us know so we can make sure they get a t shirt as well!"
