2018 Walk for Alzheimer’s Oxford County Continues to Blow Us Away!
The Alzheimer Society of Oxford is delighted to announce that this year’s Walk for Alzheimer’s events in Tillsonburg, Ingersoll, and Woodstock have raised a record-breaking $166,300.00 – an increase of $20,000.00 over last year!
We could not have achieved this success without the dedication, commitment and generosity of our: sponsors; silent auction and door prize donors; volunteers; walkers and all those who gave pledges to our walkers. See our ever-expanding Walker Hall of Fame and discover some of the people that made our 2018 Walk extra special!
A heart-felt thank you to Kevin and Helen Cooper of Coop’s Construction our Presenting Sponsor, 104.7 Heart FM our Presenting Media Sponsor, and all of our long-term and new sponsors.
The Walks across Oxford County were very well attended. The Tillsonburg Walk raised $30,210.00, the Ingersoll Walk raised $15,203.25 and the Woodstock Walk raised $120,862.13.
The Walker Hall of Fame, recognizing twenty-nine dedicated participants who have raised more than $5,000 for the Society over the years, is a bright light at our Walks. The silent auction was a big hit again this year raising $4,429.50.
The funds generated by the Walk are absolutely essential for the Alzheimer Society of Oxford, as the organization raises 38% of its budget. We are thankful to the provincial government (through the Local Health Integration Network) for providing 62% of our funding.
Thank you to everyone in Oxford who made this amazing success possible!!!
