Alzheimer’s Tennessee 500
Race to Make Alzheimer's a Memory
Did you know it’s 500 miles across the state?
To commemorate families in Tennessee living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, the Alzheimer’s Tennessee 500 starts with an online “race” to raise awareness and funds.
Join the race by making a donation and showing your support.
Alzheimer's Tennessee is proud to share that $.85 of every dollar raised is directly re-invested in research, programs and services that benefit Tennesseans.
Since this race needs a winner, when you donate, you can choose to select which region (and Walmart store) you want to receive "credit" for your support.
Walmart "Pit Stop" Celebrations: Oct. 20-23, 2019
Join Walmart Associates and Court Clerks across the state at 12 Regional Pit Stops from Memphis to Bristol featuring Fun, Food, and Entertainment!
The Alzheimer's Tennessee Purple Pace Car will "connect" the Pit Stops by making the 500 mile trip across the state.
Each Pit Stop celebration is unique - with food and festivities. Plus surrounding Walmart stores and supporters have the opportunity to present their contributions and learn more about Alzheimer's and the services provided by Alzheimer's Tennessee.
