IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's

IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's

During the month of May, participate in the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's, and join thousands of Canadians who want to see a world without Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

What is the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's?

The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's is Canada's biggest fundraising event for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Normally taking place in more than 400 communities across the country, in 2019 more than 37,000 Canadians raised a record $6.2 million in the Walk.

These funds will go toward local programs and services that improve quality of life for people living with dementia and their families in your community and support awareness and education about dementia.

What's different in 2020?

The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's has moved online! We're turning the walk into a month-long campaign of getting active.

For all of May, walkers are lacing up their shoes and running the stairs, walking the dog, hitting the trampoline, doing yoga and otherwise choosing a way to show their support.

And, on May 31st, we gather coast-to-coast for a livestream celebration (9 a.m. PDT/12 p.m. EDT). 

How do I get involved?

  1. Visit www.walkforalzheimers.ca and sign up.
  2. Choose how you want to get active. Take a picture or video and upload it to social media with the hashtag #IGWalkForAlz. For more ideas on how you can create your Walk Online, here are some more tips.
  3. Fundraise. Encourage friends and family to join you.
  4. Finally, on May 31, come back to www.walkforalzheimers.ca to watch the culimation of the Walk campaign.

Why join the Walk?

Make memories matter! When you walk, you’re sending a message of hope to Canadians living with dementia, and thousands more who care for them. When you fundraise, you’re promising them that help will always be available.

By 2031, to close to a million Canadians will be diagnosed with dementia, an increase of 66%. This is the health crisis of our time.

Join our Walk today! It’s fun, keeps you fit and raises much-needed funds and awareness.
