IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s

When

Across Elgin, Middlesex, and Oxford more than 13,000 people are living with Dementia – and this number is growing. The Alzheimer Society Southwest Partners need your help! Sign up for the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s and start fundraising today. On May 28th, join 980 CFPL’S Jess Brady for the victory lap walk celebration.

This year’s IG Wealth Management’s Walk for Alzheimer’s is a hybrid event, where people can walk 15,000 steps during the month of May for the over 15,000 people living with dementia in our region and then can join us for the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s Victory Lap Celebration on May 28th. This is the first in-person event since 2018.

There will be 4 Victory Lap Celebrations in London (Springbank Gardens), St. Thomas (Pinafore Park), Woodstock (College Ave Secondary School) and Tillsonburg (Memorial Park). Everything starts at 10:30 EXCEPT Tillsonburg which begins at 10:00. People can do both (15K steps during the month and Victory Lap or one or the other).

On July 1st, 2021, Elgin, Middlesex and Oxford chapters unified. The increasing numbers of people being diagnosed with dementia were the prime reason for the unification to allow the Alzheimer’s Society to build a bigger more efficient organization to deal with this anticipated growth (there are over 500K people living with dementia in Cda now –  by 2030 it is anticipated that number will be over 900,000).
