Alzheimer's Tennessee 500

Alzheimer’s Tennessee 500

Statewide Race to Make Alzheimer's a Memory

Sept. 2023

Did you know it’s 500 miles across the state?

Six out of ten individuals with dementia will wander. Hundreds of vulnerable, missing Tennesseans have been found SAFE since Alzheimer’s Tennessee volunteer advocates successfully passed Tennessee’s new Silver Alert Law that went into effect.

Now, Alzheimer's Tennessee and Walmart are working together to raise awareness and make sure our communities are prepared for these emergency situations by distributing "Silver Alert Kits" with lifesaving information and tools to help rescuers find missing loved ones.

Stop by a participating Walmart during the Alzheimer's Tennessee 500 to learn more about Silver Alert plus find food, fun and prizes. You can also join the race by making a donation online 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.
