The support of community sponsors is crucial to the success of the Alzheimer Society of Oxford’s Walk for Alzheimer’s. Year after year, the Ingersoll Pharmasave is one of the local businesses that steps up to the plate.
Pharmacist/Owner Dominic Ricciuto says Pharmasave feels a responsibility to help out.
“We continue to fund Walk for Alzheimer’s because it is an issue that will only continue to be increasingly important,” he says. “Our population is aging and rates of dementia are steadily going up, so it is important to ensure the success of fundraisers like this.”
Dominic also believes the Alzheimer Society’s services and programs offer “tremendous” value to the community, from its support for caregivers to its efforts raising awareness for Alzheimer’s.
Dominic would like to see more people get involved in supporting the Alzheimer Society. The devastating disease affects many people, and will touch many more lives in the years to come.
“Investing in research and support services now is honestly an investment in our own futures.”
