The Walk for Alzheimer’s is Canada’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. It’s a fun and family friendly way to create new memories while sending a message of hope to the 747,000 Canadians currently living with dementia, and the thousands more who care for them.

The Walk is a great opportunity to rally around this increasingly prevalent disease, raising awareness and much-needed funds to support local programs and services in the Toronto Area.
