With spring now underway and signs of summer on the horizon, the Alzheimer Society of Sault Ste. Marie is urging the community to support the annual IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, which takes place on Sunday, May 29, at 61 Great Northern Rd. in the local office parking lot. 

Registration begins at noon, and opening ceremonies start at 1 p.m., followed by a celebratory walk from the office.

The Walk raises crucial funds that allow the Alzheimer Society of Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma District offer programs and services to meet the needs of people living with dementia and their caregivers.

There are several ways Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma residents can take part in the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, making a positive difference in the lives of people with dementia and their families:

·  Sign up individually, with your family, or create a team on our website or contact our office at 705-942-2195 for a pledge form.

·  Take a photo or video, upload it to social media and include the hashtag #IGWalkForAlz.

·  Most of all, have fun raising funds and awareness for a fantastic cause!

Sue Caughill, who lives with dementia, and her care partner Rod are walk ambassadors for this year’s walk. They have participated in many of the programs and services offered at the local Alzheimer's Society.

“The services that we have used have been so important to our quality of life and understanding of the journey of dementia. We have learned that we are not alone, and although our experiences may be different, they are remarkably the same. By supporting the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, you will be making a difference by raising funds for services that we have used, such as the Minds in Motion, Adult Day Program, and Caregiver Support Group,” Caughill said.

We hope to see you at the walk. Who will you be walking for?
