Event Information:

 

Get ready for the first virtual IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, in support of the Alzheimer Society Thunder Bay. While we can’t physically walk together right now, we can still connect virtually and have fun as a group!

 

On Sunday May 31, 2020, we will ask walkers to move any way they can! 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.

 

Throughout the day on May 31st, we will be hosting a live broadcast on our Walk website and Facebook page (12:00pm), showing walkers across Canada moving any way they can! We will also have videos of musical guests, the Alzheimer Society staff, and a National Government representative.

 

While the Alzheimer Society Thunder Bay has 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.

 

For those of you who have the ability, we need your support now, more than ever before. We have many ways to connect you to your community and help you to reach out and have meaningful impact. Together we can make a difference.
