Why join the Walk?
Make memories matter! There are many reasons to join the Walk:
1. Your support is vital
When you walk, you’re sending a message of hope to the thousands of people living with dementia in Canada, as well as the thousands more who care for them.
When you fundraise, you’re ensuring that Alzheimer Society programs and services have the funds they need to provide direct help and support for people living with dementia and their caregivers.
2. Dementia is the health crisis of our time
- Over 600,000 Canadians currently live with dementia. By 2050, the number of people living with dementia in Canada will almost triple the 2020 level, and over 1.7 million Canadians will be living with dementia.
- The annual cost of dementia to the Canadian economy and healthcare system is over $10.4 billion.
3. It's fun!
Joining the Walk is a great way to get together with friends, families and neighbours and support your community. And it keeps you fit and raises much-needed funds and awareness!
