Get ready for the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s!
Sunday, May 1, 2016
We would like to thank all the participants, sponsors, donors and volunteers who have participated in the Investors Group Walk for Memories. You have truly made a difference in the lives of those affected with dementia across the British Columbia.
We’re excited to announce that the Investors Group Walk for Memories is becoming the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s and will take place on the first Sunday in May. In doing so, we are joining Alzheimer Societies across the country in a nation-wide movement to raise funds and awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
The Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s is the same great event in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C., organized by volunteers in our community. Save the date and join the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s on Sunday, May 1 to honour and remember those who face dementia in our community.
Our next promotion is the “iPot of Gold Contest”. Raise a minimum of $200 by St. Patrick’s Day, March 17 and you will be entered into a draw for an Apple iPad Air! Please note that funds must be received by March 17, so entering your donations online is easiest. If computers aren’t your thing, you can mail your donation cheque(s) to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. at the address - Alzheimer Society of B.C., 300 - 828 West 8th Ave., Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E2. In the memo line please note Walk location and contest name (ie. Kelowna IPot of Gold).Here are 3 simple ways to raise $200:
- Donate $25 to yourself + ask 4 friends for $25 + ask 5 co-workers for $15
