It's Forget Me Not Week!  Be a Part of Change

Today, there are 747,000 Canadians living with dementia. Throughout the year, caregivers will spend 444 million hours caregiving for someone living with dementia. As a nation, we will pay $33 billion dollars this year for the cost of dementia.

This is reality. It’s time for change.

You can be part of the change! If you’re a student attending university or college in Nova Scotia, join us for Forget Me Not Week in January!

Forget Me Not week is a fundraising challenge all students in Nova Scotia can participate in. All social clubs, sports teams, student groups and committees are invited to take part in this challenge. How you decide to raise the funds is up to you. Some activities you can do at your school include: hosting a trivia night, school bake sale or yoga/fitness challenge.

We need your support.


By participating in Forget Me Not Week, you will have the opportunity to:
• Help support thousands of families in Nova Scotia who are living with this disease.
• Learn more about Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.
• Compete for a cause against schools across Nova Scotia.

Become a leader at your school and help create a future without Alzheimer’s disease.

Is your school up for the challenge?
