Coffee Break

Coffee Break /Anything For Alz Campaign & McDonald's Coffee Day For Alzheimer's!

Coffee Break® has been one of the Alzheimer Society's biggest annual fundraisers for over 20 years, where friends, co-workers, and customers gather in communities across Canada to raise funds for local Alzheimer Societies. Participants at the event make a donation in exchange for a cup of coffee. Join those who host their event on World Alzheimer Day by hosting on SEPTEMBER 21, 2019. OR - support the McDonald's Coffee Day fundraiser for Alzheimer's on Thursday September 12th. More information below.
