Alzheimer's and other dementias affects over 9,000 people in Sarnia-Lambton. 3,000 of that number are people who have been diagnosed with dementia and the remaining 6,000 are care-partners and family members. We know that for every one person diagnosed with dementia, there are 2 others affected. For the month of May commit to walking 250,000 steps. One for every Ontarian living with dementia. Or join us on Sunday, May 29th at the Suncor Agora, Centennial Park and walk 9,000 steps. One for every person in Sarnia Lambton affected by Alzheimer's or other dementias. Get your family together and form a team and walk in honour of somebody who is living with dementia or in honour of somebody. This year we are offering a breakfast after the walk from Bagel Factory!
