THANK YOU FOR HELPING US RAISE $6.2M IN 2023 TO SUPPORT INDIVIDUALS LIVING WITH ALZHEIMER'S AND DEMENTIA IN YOUR COMMUNITY.

WHO WILL YOU WALK FOR?
REGISTER FOR A WALK ON MAY 25 OR 26!

Over 650,000 Canadians currently live with dementia. By 2050, nearly 2 million people living in Canada could be living with dementia.

Since 2015, the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s has raised over $47M for people living with dementia and their care partners. Thank you for making a difference!

If the onset of dementia could be delayed by 10 years, over 4 million new cases of dementia could be avoided by 2050.

Why I Walk for Alzheimer's:

My family and I have been walking since 2014 in loving memory and honor of My Mom, Glenna Jones. We keep her memory alive through the walk and we love to support this cause that makes a difference in the lives of families who are affected by this disease. We know she is with us when we walk and is proud of us for doing this for her.

Why I Walk for Alzheimer's:

I first got involved with the society when my in-laws Walter & Joyce Brydges were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I went to the caregiver support group, which really helped us... This past year [my neighbour] and I committed to walk 10,000 a day for the month of May. We walked 462,095 steps or 355 km and raised $8753.00. I do it every year to pay tribute and remember the wonderful in-laws that we lost to this terrible disease.

Why I Walk for Alzheimer's:

...when my mother was diagnosed... I witnessed the demand for services grow, and watched the Society form into what it is today. With over 2,600 people living with dementia in Muskoka and Parry Sound, the Walk is an incredibly important fundraiser, for an incredibly important organization.​

I walk for Alzheimer’s in memory of my Mom, Stella Oliver. ​She was a quiet lady who loved to do things for her family. I walk to raise money so families can get the help they need from the Alzheimer Society
