The Alzheimer Society of B.C. thanks the 23 communities across British Columbia who raised more than $670,000 through the 2013 Investors Group Walk for Memories. Thousands of British Columbians joined the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
“Thank you, B.C., for showing your support and giving so generously to this important cause,” says Sharon Moskalyk, Vice President, Financial Services at Investors Group, the event’s title sponsor. “Investors Group is proud to be a part of this important community event, which receives a groundswell of support each year.”
Funds raised at the Walk benefit the Alzheimer Society of B.C., ensuring a province-wide network of programs and support for families faced with the Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
“The support from Investors Group and our sponsors, donors and volunteers is essential to our mission of supporting the more than 70,000 families in B.C. who face dementia,” says Jean Blake, CEO at the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “We cannot do it alone, and we greatly appreciate the dedication and generosity of Investors Group and the many, many others who give.”
Even though this year’s Walk is now a memory, there are still ways to help. To support the Society’s vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, donate online at www.walkformemories.com, or join or start a Walk in your community for 2014. The next Investors Group Walk for Memories is slated for Jan. 26, 2014. Registration will be open soon.
