Thank you for participating in the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s biggest fundraising event, the 2022 IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s. It was great to be back in-person again and to connect with so many of you after a two-year hiatus on in-person events like this one.

Walk online donation website is available until June 30

We will keep the website and this page open until June 30 so friends and family can continue to support the fundraising effort. Feel free to keep sharing it on your social media platforms. And most importantly, if you fundraised, make sure to reach out and thank the people who supported you. Our programs and services are available to anyone in the province, thanks to the generous support of the community, including the people who supported your fundraising.

Walk Patrons - have your donation matched up to $35,000!

A big thank you to the Lecky Foundation and an anonymous donor who have come on board as provincial Walk Patrons this year. These generous donors have pledged to match donations made online in the province of B.C. by May 29 up to a total of $35,000, including right here in South Okanagan! Fundraise now to make twice the difference!

    

Why fundraise for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.?

Two-in-three British Columbians have personally known someone who is living with or who has lived with dementia. While our 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 IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s ensure that people living with dementia – and their families – have access to Alzheimer Society of B.C. support, education and information. Funds raised will also enable research into the causes of and cures for dementia.

You may send cheques by mail to ASBC Provincial office (300 - 828 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver B.C. V5Z 1E2). Cash cannot be mailed to the Society.
