Join Canada in making a difference at Walk for Alzheimer’s Vancouver.

Hosted by The Investor’s Group, the Walk for Alzheimer’s is an annual fundraising event that raises money nationwide to improve the quality of life for the nearly 70,000 people in B.C. living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, almost 10,000 of which are under the age of 65.

The Alzheimer’s Society of B.C. is leading the mission to change the nature of dementia care in the province, providing education, workshops, support groups, and more for those living with dementia and their families.

The Walk for Alzheimer’s takes place in 150 communities across Canada, and in 2014 alone was responsible for raising over $4.5 million in funds and support.

Metro Vancouver walks include Vancouver, Richmond/South Delta, Tri-Cities/Burnaby New Westminster, Ridge Meadows, and White Rock/Delta, Surrey.
