Thanks for the Memory Walk

Thanks for walking, Red Deer! To everyone who helped make the 2012 Investors Group Memory Walk a success: You’ve taken important steps to make a difference for people in our community who are living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

Thanks for walking, Red Deer! To everyone who helped make the 2012 Investors Group Memory Walk a success: You’ve taken important steps to make a difference for people in our community who are living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

Through our event and five others held throughout Alberta and the Northwest Territories on June 16, we’ve raised $240,000 — and counting — to support the work of the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and NWT. Funds raised help families impacted by the disease have the confidence and skills to maintain quality of life. The money also supports vital research into the causes, more effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer’s.

Special thanks to our dedicated volunteers for the countless hours each of you has contributed. I’d also like to thank our title sponsor, Investors Group, for their steadfast support of the Memory Walk.

I’d also like to recognize our generous and community-minded local sponsors including the Red Deer Kiwanis Club and Red Deer Twilight Homes Foundation, The River 100.7, Rock 104.5 and 96.5CKFM, Sunny 94 and Kraze 101.3, as well as the Red Deer Advocate and Sunnybrook Farm Museum.

We’ll see you at the Investors Group Memory Walk in 2013. Save the date: Saturday, June 15. Visit www.alzheimer.ab.ca for information.
