Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease!

When we register for this, are we registering to volunteer to help with any race tasks like handing out water, cleaning up the trash, check-in, etc. or are we registering to participate in the race?
