In memoriam: Gordie Howe
Dementia Advocate Jim Mann with Gordie Howe at the Gordie Howe & Friends Luncheon in 2013.
With sadness, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. would like to recognize the passing of a friend to the Society, a supporter of the cause, and a Canadian legend: Mr. Hockey himself, Gordie Howe.
From 2013 to 2015, Gordie was the Honourary Chair for the Scotiabank Hockey for Alzheimer’s tournament, helping to raise funds for support services, education and research into the causes and possible cures for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Our thoughts are with the Howe family.
