Does online fundraising raise more money?

Yes. Walk statistics report online donations can be up to 25% higher than a direct request.

How do I register?

Register online or bring your pledge sheet and register on the day of the Walk. Either way, all walkers must "check in" to register on the day of the Walk at the registration tables. 

What are the fundraising proceeds used for?

Event proceeds are used to provide financial support for the programs and services we provide to individuals living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias, their family members and caregivers, and the general public.  

Where do we walk?

Indoors in a warm and dry venue!

Tillsonburg - Lions Auditorium, 45 Hardy Ave.
Ingersoll - Unifor Local 88, 364 Victoria St. S.
Woodstock - Oxford Auditorium, 875 Nellis St. 

How far do I have to walk? 

There is no set distance that you are expected to walk. Walk 10 km or stop any time you like! Many families and teams will walk together or just sit and visit with friends. Walking at our event is optional. There are no rules and we have interactive activities to keep the mind stimulated. We want you to have fun! 

Can I bring my family? Can children get involved in the Walk?

Yes - we love families! All your family members of all ages are welcome to come and get involved.

Is there food and drink available?

Yes! Each Walk will have beverages and a selection of snack type foods available. 

Can I make a donation, even if I don't want to participate?

Yes you can. We welcome all types of support. Donations can be made through our office, at the Walk or an online donation. Donations of $20 or more will be automatically receipted.
