Thousands of British Columbians in 22 communities across the province are participating in the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s on Sunday, May 7, 2017. They are joined by Alzheimer Societies across the country in a nation-wide movement to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

We walk to remember people who have passed and to honour the estimated 70,000 individuals in B.C. who are living with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia, while fundraising for support services, education programs and research for a cure.

Are you interested in registering or have you already registered? The Easter bunny has visited the Alzheimer Society of B.C. early this year and wants to treat two of our egg-cellent fundraisers with an iPad. If you raise $150 online between April 10 and 17, you will go in the draw to win. Click here to register or hop into your participant center to start spreading word.

Easter is a time to come together with family and friends and create beautiful memories. This year, why not ask people to sponsor you in exchange for Easter eggs? You could ask 15 friends to donate $10 each or five family members to donate $30 each.

Hop to it! Competition ends Easter Monday. Good luck in the contest and thank you again for your continued support of the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer's.
