Why fundraise for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.?
The Walk is the largest annual fundraising event for the Society and is a way to honour and remember people in our lives, and in our communities, who have been affected by the disease. Funds raised will help to provide programs and services for families on the journey, and contribute to research into the causes of, and possible treatments for, the disease.
Right now, there are more than 85,000 people living with dementia in B.C. The Society provides people living with dementia, and their caregivers, the support they need to maintain the best possible quality of life throughout the progression of the disease. It is through the generous efforts of fundraisers who participate in events such as the Walk that we are able to deliver this support.
Join us to show people affected by dementia they don’t have to walk the journey alone.
Register as an individual, start a new team or join an existing team.
