Care Facility Challenge is part of our Walk for Alzheimer’s fundraiser. It is open to Care Facilities across Nova Scotia who are unable to attend our main Walk events, but want to support the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia by hosting their own event.
Your event can be whatever you want it to be. You are only limited by your imagination, resources and the needs/requirements of your residents. Most facility chose to host a social for their residents and staff (maybe some music and ice cream) followed by a leisurely walk around their parking lot or grounds. Others chose to host a full 5 km walk.
Choose a date between June and September 30 and contact the Alzheimer Society to Register. We will send you poster, customized pledge sheets, a packet full of ideas and tips on how to plan an event.
For more information or to register call Dawn at 902-422-7961.

Walk for Alzheimer's is a fundraising event. Being part of the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia’s Walk for Alzheimer’s means that you will have a direct and positive impact on the lives of Nova Scotians living with dementia.

This event is significant and essential in providing the programs and services that allow Nova Scotians a level of comfort and support as they live their dementia journey.
By supporting this event, you will make a tangible impact on the quality of life for the 17,000 Nova Scotians who are navigating the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
