Fundraising events

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. hosts a number of signature events throughout the year. The dollars raised at the events support the 70,000 British Columbians and their families who are affected by the disease. Your participation in our events makes a significant difference for those living with the disease through Alzheimer programs and services in your local community.

Year-round

Anything for Alzheimer's

We make it easy for you to host your own fundraising event to support people affected by dementia. You could host a coffee break, take on a challenge, clean out your storage and sell items, or you could do any other creative idea you dream up – you can truly do Anything for Alzheimer! Given the current need for physical distancing, we have created a 2020 fundraising kit that highlights some ways you can adapt your idea into a virtual event. To register your event so you can track your fundraising progress and allow your friends and family to easily support the event, visit Anything for Alzheimer's.
