When you participate, you make memories matter and send a message of hope to the over 4,000 people in Cornwall and District and the more than 500,000 Canadians currently living with dementia and those who care for them. And when you fundraise, you promise them that help will always be available.

You can make a difference for people right here in the 5 eastern counties!  Register today for the Walk with a team or as an individual for fun, fitness and raising much-needed funds and awareness. Invite your family, friends, neighbours and co-workers too! Every step you take together brings us one step closer to a world without Alzheimer’s disease. 

The funds you raise support local programs and services that improve the quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and their families such as our caregiver support, education and adult day programs.

Walk and Fundraise!

Here is how you can start fundraising and getting those steps in!

  1. Register for a Walk Event! Find your preferred Walk location (Cornwall, Alexandria, Rockland) and register for an in-person Walk event. 
  2. Pledge Yourself! Get started by giving yourself a boost in reaching your goal. By making a self-donation, you show your friends and family how much you care about the cause and will help motivate them to donate too!
  3. Customize Your Page! Log into your Participant Centre and update your photo, share your story, and set your fundraising goal. You will be given a customized link that you can share within your network to help you fundraise!
  4. Start Sharing! Use the power of social media to your advantage and spread the word about the #IGWalkForAlz & #AlzStepChallenge. Share pictures of your step progress and your Personal Fundraising page to keep your momentum going.

Help us reach our goal. You can do your part by walking 4,000 steps a day in honour of the 4,000 people living with dementia in Cornwall & District —one step each day for each person living with dementia in our community.

Thank you for taking the first step to making a difference in the lives of those impacted by dementia. Your efforts will help raise crucial funds to meet the growing demand of life-changing programs and services that our community relies on for their wellbeing.
