Thanks for making memories matter

May 1 event raised $775,000 for alzheimer society of b.c.

I would like to thank residents of White Rock, North Delta and Surrey for walking in the 2016 Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s. You’ve helped make a difference to the people in our community who are living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.

Through our event and 22 others held around the province on May 1, we’ve raised more than $775,000 to support the work of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

The White Rock/North Delta/Surrey Walk raised an amazing $61,000 and involved more than 350 people taking part in the walk, plus volunteers.

If you’d like to add a donation to show your support, please visit walkforalzheimers.ca today.

Funds raised will go towards support services and education resources, as well as helping fund research into the causes and cure.

Special thanks to our dedicated volunteer committee for the countless hours each of them has contributed and to the family of our honouree, the late Marilyn Stewart, for sharing their dementia journey with our community.

I’d also like to thank all our event sponsors: Investors Group, Cowell Auto Group, Retirement Concepts, Summerland Health Auxiliary, Immediate Images and Global BC.

Next year’s event will take place May 7, 2017. We’ll see you there!

Thanks once more for joining us to make memories matter.
