The York Region IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's was held on Saturday, May 27th at  Lake Wilcox Park in Richmond Hill!

The goal for this year's event was $100,000 in support of critical programs and services for families impacted by dementia.

Please visit the link below to find out where we stand in our fundraising goals:



On Saturday May 27th, 2023 join us for the first time in three years in person at Lake Wilcox, Oak Ridges Community Centre in support of York Region residents impacted by dementia. Create a team or register individually and make sure to tell us who you are walking for!

All money raised in York Region during the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's stays in the community to help the Alzheimer Society of York Region (AS York) deliver vital programs and services to those living with the disease and their families. 

We are challenging participants to be as creative as possible and have fun! Every step you take will help people living with dementia, their care partners, and their families in York Region know that they do not walk on this journey alone.
