Rally in Tally: How Everyone Can Help

Rally in Tally is Jan. 16 and 17! Florida has the second-highest incident rate of Alzheimer’s disease in the country. Your voice is critical to raising Alzheimer’s awareness and urgency.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Join us in Tallahassee. Be our special guest as all four Alzheimer’s Association Chapters of Florida host “Rally in Tally” – a unique state advocacy experience where you will meet with state legislators, tell your story and explain why it is important for them to make Alzheimer’s issues a top priority! You can come for both events or just one.

Lighting the Florida Capitol in Purple for Alzheimer’s

The Old Florida Capitol will be lit up purple for the annual “Rally in Tally.”

January 16 – Tuesday Night at Sundown we will hold a “Purple Lighting Ceremony” on the steps of the historic, Old State Capitol with state legislators (approximately 30 minutes)

January 17 – State Advocacy Day on Wednesday when legislative meetings will take place in the new Capitol Building

If you do not live in Tallahassee, please see the contact information below and we’ll see if there are any services shuttling to the Capitol. Some areas have shuttles to the Capitol (on a first come, first serve basis) and some people are driving on their own.
