British Columbia, thank you for walking to make memories matter
The Alzheimer Society of B.C. was joined yesterday by thousands of British Columbians in 22 communities across the province in the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s. We were joined by other Alzheimer Societies across the country as part of a nation-wide movement to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Participants walked to remember people who have passed away from dementia and to honour the estimated 70,000 individuals in B.C. who are living with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia, while fundraising for support services, education programs and research for a cure.
The Walk journey isn’t over yet! Donations are still open; click here to donate to one of our participants. We look forward to sharing more information with you about the event and photographs in the coming weeks.
The Alzheimer Society of B.C. would like to thank all of the incredible fundraisers and participants who joined us. an additional heartfelt thanks to all of our generous sponsors, especially our title sponsor Investors Group - we couldn't do this without you. We hope to walk with you again next year. Together, we make memories matter.
