About this years IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's
The annual IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s will be a hybrid format this year, taking place virtually throughout the month of May and ending with one Walk and Wrap-Up Celebration on May 28 in Conservation Park in Napanee. Registration sites are set up for both the Kingston region and for Lennox and Addington region, and anyone is invited to join us at the final in-person celebration regardless of which walk you are registered for. The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimers is our largest fundraiser of the year!
Walk Your Way Any Day in May, Take Our Step Challenge, and Join Us for an In-Person Celebration!
This year, we have a hybrid model that allows you to walk when you want and where you want in May, and if you wish to, you can also join us at an in-person walk and wrap-up celebration on May 28 in Napanee. This will be the only in-person walk this year, and you can join us even if you have already walked elsewhere, to enjoy the lunch, the entertainment and the activities on site.
Wherever you decide to walk, we challenge you to take one step for every person living with dementia in KFL&A. That's 4500 people - so you can walk that much in one day, walk that every week, or, walk that many steps every day in May! And, challenge your friends and family, your neighbours, your co-workers to participate as well, when and where they wish to!
Don't forget to track your steps and add them to the step counter on the walk website so we can total all the steps taken across our region at the end of the month!
Where Does Your Money Go?
This year, we are still offering activities online as well as in person where health protocols allow. The much needed funds raised by the walk enable us to maintain and enhance our programs and services for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia's throughout KFLA, as well as their caregivers and families. They also help us to educate decision-makers about the need for improved health care services, and to offer educational opportunities to increase awareness of the disease and its impact, making our communities more dementia friendly!
We Appreciate You!
We thank all past and current participants, donors, sponsors and volunteers. You are making a difference for the over 4500 individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias in the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington communities.
Please join us when and how you want to, any day in May! Then, on May 28 from 10:30am to 2:30pm join us in Napanee for a fun day of good food, fun activities and entertainment and, if you still feel like a walk, you can start with a stroll at 11am, along the Napanee River boardwalk.
When you register online for either walk, you will be asked to indicate if you will also attend the May 28 event. If you are unsure, we just ask that you let us know by phone or email, no later than May 25, so we can be sure we have adequate refreshments and food!
Can You Make a Video or Send us Photos of Your Walk?
If you are participating this year online, why not take photos of your day, or make a video in advance or during your walk telling us why you are walking, what you are doing, who you are walking for, and send it to us at [email protected]. We'll put it on social media to promote the walk and encourage others to join in!
