Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer's
With the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer's
, you help transform the way we all live with and challenge dementia. Join us on the first Sunday in May in your community. While our Walk
has a new date and a new name, it is the same great walk in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. The Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s
expressly names the disease for which funds are being raised. We're saying the name of the disease publicly to fight stigma. By walking with other provinces on the same date, we are united for a world without Alzheimer’s.
Forget Me Not Golf Tournament
The Forget Me Not Golf Tournament
is the Alzheimer Society of B.C.'s largest annual research fundraiser. Proceeds are divided equally between supporting families in B.C. who are living with the disease and funding research for the causes and the cure through the Alzheimer Society Research Program
. With your help, there is hope we’ll find the cause and cure. The event is held each year in May.
