Start spreading the news: the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s flagship fundraiser, the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, is less than one week away! You can show you support people affected by dementia by registering for the event, taking place on Sunday, May 5, at Nelson Rotary Lakeside Park.
The Walk will take place in 21 locations across B.C. as part of a movement to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. To thank participants for their support, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. has recently announced an exciting fundraising incentive. For every $100 participants raise online between the time they register and 11:59 p.m. on May 5, they will receive an entry in the draw to win return flights for two to New York City courtesy of Cathay Pacific, and $1,000 to spend on accommodation from Visa Gift Cards! Full contest terms and conditions can be found at www.walkforalzheimers.ca.
This event is a way British Columbians can celebrate and remember people in their lives who have been affected by dementia. “The Walk is a powerful way for people to come together to reduce the stigma of dementia in their communities and ensure people living with dementia are supported, included and acknowledged,” says Maria Howard, Alzheimer Society of B.C. Chief Executive Officer.
