Thousands of people came out to the Investors Group Walk for Memories in 23 communities across the province. By walking and collecting pledges, you have helped ensure that Alzheimer Society of B.C. programs and services are available for more than 70,000 people in British Columbia who are living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.
If you couldn’t make it to your local Walk, you can still help make a difference and support families in your community. Support a walker or a team.
The Walk raises awareness about Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and raises funds for people in your community who are living with dementia. Next year's event will take place in communities across B.C. on Jan. 26, 2014, as part of National Alzheimer Awareness Month.
See local details about the Walk closest to you.
Online registration will be open soon.
