2018 WFA Smithers Honouree Header

The Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s is a fun and family-friendly event that brings the Smithers community together and raises vital funds for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

When you walk, you make memories matter. You honour people who have passed and acknowledge the work that must be done to ensure help and hope for the people living with the disease today. Each year we honour a member of the Smithers community who has been affected by dementia or who has valuably contributed to the lives of people living with the disease.

This year we honour Julia and Maria Trottier. Click here to read their story.

Get your family, friends and colleagues together and join us for an amazing day at the 2018 Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s. Together, we make memories matter.

Why fundraise for Alzheimer Society of B.C.?

The Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s ultimate vision is a world without dementia; that vision begins with a world where people living with the disease are welcomed, acknowledged and included.

The funds you raise through the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s ensures the estimated 70,000 British Columbians who are living dementia and their families have access to support, education and information. Funds raised will also enable research into the causes of and cures for dementia.

It takes courage and leadership to break down stigma and take steps to build a society that is friendlier, more accepting and more supportive of people living with dementia. Through your support and fundraising, we are able to bring B.C. a step closer to becoming a truly dementia-friendly province.
