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.

Collecting cash and cheques?

We encourage you to use the website as much as possible for your fundraising in 2022 in order to minimize paper exchanges on the day of the event. If you do collect cash or cheques, please ensure you arrive at the event with this Pledge Form already completed.
