Ontario is walking for Alzheimer's.
Walk and make memories matter.
Here in Ontario, we host Walks throughout the year. If you can’t find your 2021 Walk location listed, keep checking back for an event near you or contact your local Alzheimer Society for more details about the Walk for Alzheimer's in your community.
MAKE YOUR MOVE THIS WINTER
SHOW THE POWER OF CONNECTION.
Get ready for the first virtual IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s. While we can’t physically walk together right now, we can still connect virtually and have fun as a group! Do a dance, walk the stairs, jump rope, walk around the block. Challenge friends, family, neighbours and co-workers to join you and let’s show the world that our connections matter.
We will make a move to strengthen the roots of our community and bring hope to those facing isolation and loneliness. Now is the time to come together in the face physical isolation with kinship. Now more than ever, our connections matter. Please join us and register today.

STRIKE A POSE
These are unprecedented times. We all need to distance physically and are experiencing the difficulty and isolation it brings. But for our clients, caregivers and the families of those who live with dementia and Alzheimer’s, the social and physical isolation is extremely challenging. We are taking every step to play our part in the fight to contain the spread of Covid-19 in Canada. While we have gone remote, we are still here working around the clock to bring online and telephone support to caregivers, families and all those living with dementia.

Ask, ask, ask!
Why don't some people give money? Because they're never asked! Make a commitment to ask at least one person every day to support you in your fundraising. Don't forget to ask your friends on social media.
Keep the momentum
The earlier you start fundraising, the better. Always follow up with every person you've asked. And if they donated, don't forget to thank them.
Make it real
If you've got a story, special memory, or the fantastic person you're inspired by to Walk for, share it! It will motivate people to support your fundraising efforts.
Organize a bake sale at home and ask for a donation for your cookies; take on a challenge; like exercising at home or even getting your parents to donate if you clean your room. Decorate your windows and sidewalk. Are you working remotely? Involve your workplace; How much are coworkers willing to give you to look silly on a video call or do that new dance everyone is doing?
Get creative and don't be afraid to get silly.
