Walk for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day and Older American's Month

Every step we take together is on the path toward elder justice.
The National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) is excited to announce our very first virtual awareness walk, Walk for WEAAD (World Elder Abuse Awareness Day)! As we continue to take precautionary and preventive measures against COVID-19, let’s get active every day and collectively take steps to advance elder justice. 

Build a national elder justice movement, through movement!
Walk for WEAAD campaign begins May 1st, on the first day of Older Americans Month, and runs through June 15th, WEAAD. 
Sign up now online or in the Walker Tracker app, so you’re ready to walk, run, or do any other activity to show your support for WEAAD. And we do mean any other activity — Walker Tracker converts Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) recommended activities into steps, so we can count every step we are collectively taking to advance elder justice.  

How to get ready for Walk for WEAAD (May 1 – June 15):
·         Register and create your profile on https://weaad.walkertracker.com/ by April 30, 2021.  
·         Find a purple shirt, ribbon, or face mask to wear or create signs to raise awareness of WEAAD.  
·         Encourage your colleagues, friends, and community to join at https://weaad.walkertracker.com/.  

We can’t wait to get started!
