Walk for Alzheimer’s event takes place this Sunday

Funds raised will provide resources, support, and education for those living with the disease

When dozens of participants gather at the Suncor Agora in Centennial Park this Sunday for the IG Wealth Management “Walk for Alzheimer’s” it will be for a very good cause.

In fact, the funds raised will go toward local programs and services that improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their families.

The Walk for Alzheimer’s is Canada’s biggest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and beyond Sarnia-Lambton, similar events are held in more than 300 communities across the country.

This Sunday’s event begins with registration at 8 a.m., followed by a warmup at 8:45 a.m. and the walk itself at 9 a.m. sharp.

The Rotary Club of Sarnia is hosting a pancake and sausage breakfast ($7 for adults, $5 for children 10 and under, and $20 for a family pass—two adults, two children).

In 2018, Canadians participating in the Walk raised over $5 million.

The funds raised will go toward local programs and services that improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their families.

Among the many walkers taking part in Sunday’s event is David Burrows, who continues to promote the event through his internet-based “Live with David Burrows” show. A link to his Alzheimer’s Walk donation page can be found HERE.
