YOU MADE WALKED YOUR WAY THIS MAY AND SHOWED THE POWER OF CONNECTION.
Huron County IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's participants walked 2,303,095 steps and raised over $70,000 to support people living with dementia!
We called on YOU to lace up your shoes, fundraise, and walk 1,385 steps each day in May in honour of the 1,385 people living with dementia in Huron County during the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s.
You completed your steps at your own pace—in one day, in one week, or over the whole month and you challenged your friends, family, and neighbours to get involved at a distance!
The more than $70,000 that was raised this year, will help meet the growing demand for life-changing programs and services that our community relies on for their wellbeing when affected by Alzheimer's disease or another dementia. Every step that you took was a step towards supporting one person impacted by dementia. No one should have to face this terrible disease alone.
Drop off your donations
If you have collected any pledges, you can drop them off at the Alzheimer Society of Huron County office in Clinton. The office is open Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 4:30 pm. Please ring the doorbell and someone will come to assist you. If you need to arrange a pickup or drop off of your donations outside of office hours, please call us at 519-482-1482.
Managing through COVID-19
Over the last year and a half, we have all had to distance physically and have experienced the difficulty and isolation it brings. But for our clients, caregivers and the families of those who live with dementia and Alzheimer’s, the social and physical isolation is extremely challenging. While the Alzheimer Society have gone remote with our services, we are still here working to bring online and telephone support to caregivers, families and all those living with dementia.
Although our walk is over for this year, if you are still interested in making a donation, you can either call the office or visit one of the following links to donate online for Clinton, Exeter, Goderich, Grand Bend, or Wingham.
You can also click the orange donate button on this screen to donate.
Together, we are making memories matter.
Thank you to everyone that participated and donated to the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's! Considering the circumstances that we are all facing, our community truly comes together!
