2021 Telethon for Alzheimer's
The 2nd Telethon for Alzheimer’s, co-produced by the Alzheimer Society of B.C. and Fairchild Media Group, was successfully aired through Fairchild Radio and Fairchild TV1 on Saturday, November 13th, raising over $172,000. Funds raised will go towards supporting the Society’s programs and services for people in the Chinese community affected by dementia, as well as towards advocacy, education, research into Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
The Alzheimer Society of B.C. would like to wholeheartedly thank Fairchild Media Group and everyone across the community, including other media partners, generous sponsors and donors, and passionate volunteers, for their utmost support. It is due to the collaborative efforts of the behind-the-scenes staff at Fairchild TV, as well as a team of volunteers who tirelessly answered donor phone calls throughout the night that the event was able to achieve such fantastic results. We are especially grateful to the group of anonymous donors who donated a matching gift of $65,000, doubling the impact of all donations received that evening.
Adapting to the uncertainty that the Covid-19 pandemic brings, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. continues to adopt a variety of methods to stay connected with the community, including offering virtual education sessions, programs, and events, as well as planning for a return to in-person services. Our goal is to provide support to people affected by dementia, so that they can be a part of our society without feeling isolated or stigmatized, and achieving this goal starts with building a dementia-friendly community of care, right here in British Columbia.
For more information about dementia or to learn more about the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s Cantonese and Mandarin services, please call the First Link® Chinese Dementia Helpline at 1-833-674-5007, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or visit alzbc.org/Chinese.
The Alzheimer Society of B.C. would like to thank our wonderful sponsors for their generous support!
