This past year so many things have changed in our world – but one thing that remains constant is the strength and resiliency of people living with dementia and their care partners.
At the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region, we are honoured to be part of the journey with dementia for thousands of people in our community. And every single time you share your story with us, register for a fundraising event, send in a donation or complete volunteer work we are so grateful to YOU for helping us to continue this important work.
We have two fundraisers coming up that you can register for and make a difference!
The first is our IG Wealth Management Walk For Alzheimer’s! In Niagara, there are 10,787 people living with dementia and so we ask you to commit to walking 10,787 steps – 1 for each person battling this disease. Sign up at www.alzgiving.ca/niagara, decide if you will walk your steps every day or spread it out over the whole month, share your story with us (on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #IGWalkForAlz or by responding to this email) and raise pledges to support Local Programs and Services!
We will keep in touch with more information, but for now, will you register your team and show everyone living with dementia that you Walk with them?
