The time is now to double your impact with the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s

We are counting down to the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s online! The Walk is our flagship fundraiser and is an instrumental way we can provide support and education to the estimated 70,000 British Columbians living with dementia and the people who care for them. Funds raised at the event also allow us to help enable vital research into the causes of and cure for the disease.

While we can’t meet together this year in person, we will be joining Alzheimer Societies across Canada to livestream the event we know and love. We’re inviting British Columbians to join us online at t 9 a.m. PDT Sunday, May 31, to celebrate and honour people in their lives affected by dementia.

As well as being part of the special livestream event, you can help us help people in your community living with dementia by fundraising for the event. Simply register at walkforalzheimers.ca, set a fitness challenge (it can be as simple as committing to a three kilometre walk around your neighbourhood or doing an online fitness class for 14 days) and ask your friends and family to make a donation to your fundraising page.

We’re also thrilled to announce that for a limited time, you can make twice the difference! Some incredible Walk patrons have come together to amplify your fundraising and support the work of the Society. Our patrons include two anonymous donors and the following three donors:

  • The Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation in honour of Mr. Abrahim Tahsili
  • Sarah McLeod and Jennifer Clay, in memory of their parents Edith and Graham Clay
  • The Lam family in memory of Yvonne Lam

For every gift made online between today and May 31, our Walk patrons have pledged to match every donation made to the Walk, dollar-for-dollar (up to $75,000). These gifts contribute to vital Alzheimer Society of B.C. support and learning opportunities, which help people living with the disease live the best life possible.
