Run4ALZ® LA Marathon & LA Big 5K - Run4ALZ® LA Marathon & LA Big 5K
Join Team Alzheimer's LA at the LA Marathon and make a difference in the lives of Angelenos facing Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer's LA is an official Charity Partner of the 2019 LA Marathon for the 6th year in a row! The LA Marathon will take place on Sunday, March 24th, and WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this the most successful year ever!

Our goal is to raise $80,000 to help grow our free programs and services that help local families.

Why for Alzheimer's LA? Because for the past 37 years, we've been the only local, full-service, dementia focused nonprofit offering programs and services for individuals and families facing Alzheimer's and other dementias.  Every dollar you raise stays in the local communities we serve, with 20% of net proceeds supporting Alzheimer's and dementia research.
