The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is going virtual.
As we all learn how to deal with the challenges of the coronavirus (COVID-19), one thing holds true – the Alzheimer Society remains committed to supporting Canadians living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia and the family members who care for them. And we are taking every precaution to protect their health and safety.
Now more than ever, social connection – even from a distance – is critically important for people with dementia and their caregivers.
The Alzheimer Society is taking the same approach with the 2020 IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s by taking their walk online – or virtually – so they can continue to offer the vital programs and services that are needed more than ever for people living with dementia in our communities. Where necessary, they will modify services through online opportunities such as the asantcafe.ca.
The funds you raise through the online walk allow the Alzheimer Society to deliver these vital programs and services for the tens of thousands of Canadians living with dementia who depend on them. And this year, the need is that much greater and your support even more important.
