IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's
The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimers is held annually in the KFLA region in May. What began as a single event at Lake Ontario Park in Kingston, over the past two years has branched out to include two other locations, Conservation Park in Napanee and Pine Meadow Nursing Home in Northbrook. In 2019 we raised in excess of $50,000 collectively.
The Walk Moves ONLINE!
This year however, due to the current COVID situation requiring social and physical distancing, the Walk will move ONLINE and we hope you'll join us! How can you do that you ask?
Who are you social distancing with? Your kids? Your spouse? Your dog? Why not walk with them in your neighbourhood or yard, do jumping jacks, a stair challenge or anything that gets you moving and participating in this nationwide event! Challenge your friends and family, your neighbours, your co-workers to participate as well in their own spaces!
Where Does Your Money Go?
In this time of social distancing, our clients (those living with dementia, their caregivers and families) need us more than ever, so we continue to offer local programs and services virtually.
The much needed funds raised by this event will enable us to maintain and enhance programs and services for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia's throughout KFLA, to educate decision-makers about the need for improved health care services, and to increase awareness of the disease and its impact among community members.
We Appreciate You!
We thank all past and current participants, donors, sponsors and volunteers. You are making a difference for the over 4000 individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias in the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington communities.
Please join us ONLINE on May 31! Can't participate on May 31? That's okay, you can choose another day, Our Walk site is open now and will remain open for registrations and donations until June 8, 2020.
