Re: Investors Group Memory Walk on June 20, 2009, in Red Deer:
A big shout of thanks goes out to the participants, sponsors and volunteers that did their part to make the Investors Group Memory Walk a success.
Over $35,000 was raised, which far surpassed our goal. Over 100 hours of volunteer time went into this event. We greatly appreciate each and every volunteer.
We had a beautiful day weather-wise at the Sunnybrook Farm Museum. This made the five-km walk a pleasure. The Investors Group staff served a fantastic barbecue. The Waskasoo Bluegrass Band entertained with awesome music. Each and every step taken and dollar raised will make a difference in supporting research efforts and continuing with education and support programs.
The entire staff at the Red Deer Chapter of the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories would like to extend our sincere thanks and applaud the work done in helping us raise awareness as well as much-needed funds.
