We always need volunteers to expand our capacity to serve the thousands of West Virginians and their families living with this devastating disease.”

The Volunteer Kickoff is open to the public and a great way for Charleston area residents to learn more about the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s® Planning Committee and how to get involved. Community volunteers are critical to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s® and more volunteers are always welcome.  The Volunteer Kickoff will be an exciting event bringing together current volunteers and anyone interested in joining the planning committee.
