The CaringKind Alzheimer’s Walks brought thousands of New Yorkers together in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan, all with the mission to support care, advocacy and research. Throughout the city, walkers raised their ribbons and their voices to #GIVECARE.

Sporting our bright orange color, our walkers joined together to honor and remember those affected by an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis, while also highlighting and celebrating the sacrifices and efforts of caregivers throughout New York City.

Honored with this year’s “Community Partner Award” was Alex Schweder who is a Visiting Associate Professor at the Pratt Institute School of Design. Also honored with the “Good Samaritan Award” was CNA/mental health technician Shauna Hall.

Thank you to our 2017 Walk Team Captains, Walkers, and their families, co-workers and friends who supported our Walks.

Thank you to our staunch supporters, including our emcee, WABC-TV’s Bill Ritter and celebrity champions David Hyde Pierce and Ron Duguay, and all of our sponsors.
