Register today. AS York used to host two walks in the spring - one in Georgina and one in Richmond Hill. While this year's walk is virtual, people can still register for either walk to raise money for York Region residents impacted by dementia.
Walk 17,000 steps - one step for every York Region resident impacted by dementia.
That is the goal for this year's IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's. Participants for the virtual walk are encouraged on Saturday, May 29 to walk a step for family, friends and neighbours impacted by dementia.
You can walk it all on May 29 or throughout the course of your fundraising efforts. Or create a team, with each team member's steps adding up to 17,000. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.
When you are walking and raising funds for AS York, remember to tag us on social media: Twitter , Instagram and Facebook and use the hashtag #IGWalkforAlz , #AlzStepChallenge and #OurConnectionsMatter .
Don't forget to send us your pictures of your activities. We would love to share them on social media, our website and enewsletters. Email pictures to Lisa Day, communications and fund development coordinator, [email protected]
