Climb for Alzheimer's

read

70,000 British Columbians are currently living with dementia. You've helped to show them they’re not alone on their journey by coming together as a province and hiking thousands of kilometres over the summer.

Thank you so much for being part of this year's Climb for Alzheimer's! Each one of you has played a part by fundraising and completing hikes and challenges in communities across the province.

We're incredibly pleased to announce that, together, we have surpassed our fundraising goal!

In a time when events aren't running as they normally would, it has been inspiring to see how many of you have engaged with this year's Climb and remained motivated to help make a difference in the lives of people living with dementia. You are all awesome: well done!

Funds raised ensure that people living with dementia - and their families - have access to support, education and information, while also enabling research into the causes of and cures for dementia.

We look forward to welcoming you all back for the Climb for Alzheimer's 2021.

What is the Climb for Alzheimer's?

The Climb for Alzheimer’s is an opportunity to help the Alzheimer Society of B.C. achieve its vision of a province where people living with dementia, their caregivers and their families are acknowledged, welcomed and included – a truly dementia-friendly province.

This year, the Climb for Alzheimer’s took place in a virtual capacity across British Columbia between July 21 and September 30, 2020.

For the first time, participants could choose their Climb: from Mount Douglas to the Iceline Trail near Field or, of course, the Grouse Grind® - people tackled hikes in communities across the province to help reach our 70,000 kilometre goal. No matter whether you hiked one mountain or five, by registering and fundraising you have made a difference to people affected by dementia across B.C.
