13,000 People in our Region are Living with Dementia

Join us this May for the 2021 Virtual Walk - lace up your shoes, fundraise, and get ready to walk* 13,000 steps to honour and support the 13,000 people living with dementia in Elgin, Middlesex, and Oxford during the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s!

Because the Walk is taking place virtually this year, you can fundraise and complete your steps any way you choose – on your own or as a team, in one day, one week, or over the whole month of May.

While the event may look a little different this year, what has not changed is the need. In London and Middlesex, the Alzheimer Society has provided counselling, education, and recreation to 3,038 clients including more than 800 new families since the pandemic began. All funds raised through ASLM’s virtual Walk for Alzheimer’s will directly support local programs and services delivered in London and Middlesex County.

Need Motivation to Get Started?  

  • Fundraise $100 or more to receive a custom Alzheimer Society face mask
  • Walkers raising $600 or more will receive a special locally sourced gift bag
  • Check out the Virtual Forget-Me-Not Wall, share a picture and your own reasons for walking

Most importantly, your participation will help to ensure no one living with dementia goes unsupported.
