Join the movement! The new Walk for Alzheimer's builds on the strength of thousands of community walks across the country. It’s a great opportunity to rally around this increasingly prevalent disease, raising awareness and much-needed funds to support local programs and services in the Niagara Region.
On Sunday, January 29, 2017, make memories matter by joining in the cause. Invite your family, friends, neighbours and co-workers too; every step you take together may be one step closer to a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
Stations along the walk route will showcase and deliver health-related information and product samples for maintaining a healthy brain through diet, social activities and physical exercise. The health fair in the gym will provide information around strategies to keep your brain healthy and activities that draw attention to Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and its effects. The event will also feature Fluffy the Clown, Star Wars characters, musical entertainment and a raffle table.
Top Individual Fundraiser will win 2 round-trip VIA Rail Economy Class tickets from Toronto to Montreal, connecting to a cabin sleeper between Montreal and Halifax.
2nd Prize: Two Shaw Festival Tickets; 3rd Prize: Dinner for two at Kelsey's, St. Catharines
Top Team Fundraisers will receive a $200 Gift Certificate to Kelsey's Restaurant, St. Catharines. 2nd Prize: Tour & Tasting for 10 at The Silversmith Brewing Company
