For the third year in a row, IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, the nation’s largest fundraiser for dementia, brought together 20,000 participants from coast-to-coast in support of people living with dementia. Together they surpassed our goal and raised $6.2M, to support life-changing programs and services offered through the Alzheimer Societies across Canada.
What is the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's?
The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's is Canada's biggest fundraising event for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
These funds will go toward local programs and services that improve quality of life for people living with dementia and their families in your community and support awareness and education about dementia
