Walk Across America showcases our fight against Alzheimer's disease. It requires at least 5.7 million individual steps – that's one for every American living with Alzheimer's today.
From the oldest city on each coast - St. Augustine, FL, and San Diego, CA - Edward Jones associates will walk relay-style to St. Louis. It's anticipated that more than 1,000 volunteer walkers will take turns trekking the 3,100-mile journey through 12 states.
Walk Across America is not a fundraiser. It is an opportunity to increase awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and its impact.
Groups of Edward Jones financial advisors and branch office administrators will carry a hand-carved walking stick made from wood taken from a tree that lined the farm of Ted Jones, son of the firm's founder, who was an avid hiker.
Our partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association is a natural fit: We’re in the business of creating relationships and building family wealth; Alzheimer’s disease destroys both.
If you would like to walk with us, please contact your Edward Jones financial advisor to see if there is availability.
