Frequently Asked Questions
How do I re-start my 2014 team?
To re-start a 2014 team for a 2015 walk, you must have been a member of the team in the same 2014 event, and log in with the username and password you used last year. Forgot your username and password? Request it here. Find your local walk and click the "Register" button. Once logged in, you will be asked if you would like to re-start your team from last year. Choose to re-start your team, and continue with the registration flow.
Why does my browser ask if I'd like to share my location?
Our Walk to End Alzheimer's website uses a technology called "Geolocation." When you arrive on the site, you will be prompted to share your location. This location is based on the IP Address of your Internet Service Provider, GPS if you're browsing on a GPS-enabled device, or cellular data if you're on a cellular/LTE device. By sharing your location, the website can quickly show you the five walks closest to you. The Alzheimer’s Association will not store or use geolocation data for any other purposes than providing information on Walk events near you.
My "Walks Near You" section is not showing walks near me - why?
The Walks Near You section may show no information or incorrect information for various reasons. If you deny the "share your location" prompt (or if you've set your browser settings to never allow geolocation in the past), this section will not populate walks near you. Geolocation for internet-enabled devices is based on the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, and the Walks closest to your ISP may differ from the Walks closest to you. If you are using a browser version that does not support Geolocation, this section will not populate. If you are using a VPN client, this section may not populate, or may populate walks close to the area where your VPN network is hosted.
How do I use the "Add to Calendar" link to add a Walk to my Google Calendar?
On each Walk's homepage, there is a link to "add to calendar." If you use Outlook or an Apple device, clicking this link will create a calendar appointment that you can automatically add to your calendar. If you use Google Calendar, however, a few further steps are required:
- Visit the Walk site and click the "Add to calendar" link. An .ics file will download - you can find it in your downloads folder or save it to your desktop.
- Log into Google Calendar via your web browser.
- Click the down-arrow next to Other calendars.
- Select "Import Calendar."
- Click "Choose file" and find the file that contains your event, then click Open.
- Select the Google Calendar where you'd like to import events, then click "Import."
