2017 Walk for Alzheimer’s…the Best Ever…raised $144,303.62!

The Alzheimer Society of Oxford is delighted to announce that this year’s Walk for Alzheimer’s events in Tillsonburg, Ingersoll, and Woodstock have raised a record-breaking $144,303.62.00!

We could not have achieved this success without the dedication, commitment and generosity of our sponsors, silent auction, door prize donors, donors, volunteers and participants. See our ever-expanding Walker Hall of Fame and glimpse some of the people that made our 2017 Walk extra special! 

A heart-felt thank you to Coop’s Construction our Presenting Sponsor, 104.7 Heart FM our Presenting Media Sponsor, and all of our long-term and new sponsors.

The Walks across Oxford County were very well attended. The Tillsonburg Walk raised $25,693.50, the Ingersoll Walk raised $12,580.50 and the Woodstock Walk raised $106,029.62.

The Walker Wall of Fame, recognizing twenty-one dedicated participants who have raised more than $5,000 for the Society over the years and a silent auction at each Walk (raising $3,370.00) were new additions this year and added extra excitement to our Walks.

The funds generated by the Walk are absolutely essential for the Alzheimer Society of Oxford, as the organization raises 38% of its budget. We are thankful to the provincial government (through the Local Health Integration Network) for providing 62% of our funding.

Thank you to everyone in Oxford who made this amazing success possible!!!
