Alzheimer Society of Durham Region invites you to walk with us and make memories matter at our annual Walk for Alzheimer's. Invite your family, challenge your co-workers or get your friends involved and help fundraise and increase awareness of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias in our community.
In 2016 over 300 people joined us to make a difference for these people and their carepartners raising over $60,000 to support programs and services provided by Alzheimer Society of Durham Region. Approximately 10,000 people in Durham Region are living with dementia; help us raise awareness and funds while reducing stigma and social isolation for these individuals and their families.
Register today and walk with us to make your steps make a difference!
This year Alzheimer Society of Durham Region is giving you great incentives to start fundraising early!
For every dollar an individual participant raises their incentives are bigger and better than ever before! Why do we do this you ask? We need YOU to help us reach our fundraising goals and we want to reward you for doing so. Walk for Alzheimer's fundraisers this year will be awarded based on a tiered system and will have the opportunity to pick a gift card based on their interests and/or needs.
$100+ Walk for Alzheimer's T-shirt and Lunch Voucher
$200-$299 Walk for Alzheimer's T-shirt and Lunch Voucher + one $10 gift card
$300-$399 Walk for Alzheimer's T-shirt and Lunch Voucher + one $15 gift card
$400-$499 Walk for Alzheimer's T-shirt and Lunch Voucher + one $20 gift card
....for every $100 raised (up to $3,000) the individual participant's gift card of choice increases by $5 for a maximum incentive prize value of $150!
Walk for Alzheimer's individual participants can choose one of the following gift card options: Chapter's/Indigo, FreshCo and Shopper's Drug Mart. The gift card of your choice will be selected at registration and mailed to you following the Walk for Alzheimer's event.
*Gift cards will be purchased at the expense of Alzheimer Society of Durham Region (ASDR). Participants will have the option to choose to donate their incentive prize back to ASDR.
*In order to maximize our fundraising efforts for 2017, we ask that each individual participant who collects under $100 in pledges makes a $5 donation to receive a lunch voucher.

The Alzheimer Society of Durham Region's Walk for Alzheimer's could not be a success without the support of our sponsors. Walk for Alzheimer's 2017 is no different, and we look forward to partnering with many great organizations, local businesses and individuals to collectively pledge our support for people living with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia and those that care for them in Durham Region.
