You can still support the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s online!

Thank you so much to all of our participants, donors, sponsors, patrons and volunteers who made the first IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s online a success! On Sunday, May 31, we showed that no matter what the world looks like, we are still united to support British Columbians affected by dementia.

We would also like to send a thank you to everyone who made the live event possible, including CTV News’ Marcia MacMillan for hosting and Victoria’s Voices in Motion choir for singing the national anthem. We appreciate everyone who shared their stories and how they are walking – thank you for showing that no one walks alone on the dementia journey.

Dementia doesn’t stop and neither do we. Funds raised at the Walk are instrumental to helping us provide support and education in communities across British Columbia. 

Because of donors like you we have been able to extend the hours of our First Link® Dementia Helpline, which is now open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. to provide evening service in English. Our Mandarin, Cantonese and Punjabi support will continue to be available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Call us:

  • English: 1-800-936-6033
  • Cantonese and Mandarin: 1-833-674-5007
  • Punjabi: 1-833-674-5003
