Let’s build a national elder justice movement, through movement

The National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) is excited to announce our 4th annual virtual Walk for WEAAD

Celebrate Older Americans Month (May) and WEAAD (June 15th) by participating in Walk for WEAAD via the Charity Miles app from May 1st to through June 15th.

Here’s how to join:

  • Register to Walk for WEAAD. Encourage your family, friends, and colleagues to join!
      • After you register, you’ll receive a special link to join Walk for WEAAD in the Charity Miles app. Click the link to download Charity Miles and follow the onboarding prompts. Please note that this is an awareness campaign only, and there is no need to partake in fundraising. 
  • Optional: Join or create a team with family, friends, or colleagues. 
  • Get Moving for Elder Justice! Every time you open the Charity Miles app, it will sync with your phone’s health app and import all of your activity. Any activity recorded by devices (i.e. Apple Watch, Fit Bit, etc.) connected to your phone’s health app will automatically sync as well.
  • Spread Awareness with Every Step! Most importantly, every day you sync your miles, click the “Easy Share” button and sharing a photo of yourself Walking for WEAAD on social media using #Walk4WEAAD or #WEAAD. Tell your community why you’re walking to raise awareness of elder abuse, and why the cause is important to you. Wear purple clothing or a ribbon, or create signs to honor survivors of elder abuse.
