Let’s 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.
Sign up now online or through 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, 2022.
- Join the “CONNECTICUT” Team with colleagues, friends, and family, or members of your community.
- 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/.

For technical questions about the platform, contact the Walker Tracker support team or click the “Contact Support” button in the lower right-hand corner of your program dashboard on the desktop site or mobile app.
