Walk for Alzheimer’s kick-off event April 19

The Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s returns to Courtenay on May 6.

The event is Canada’s largest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and is a fun and family-friendly way to create a movement while sending a message of inclusion and hope to 937,000 Canadians – including an estimated 70,000 British Columbians – living with dementia and the people who care for them.

The Comox Valley is kicking off the walk by holding a launch event on April 19, 5-9 p.m. at The Prime Chophouse and Wine Bar.

Come out and enjoy a tasty meal for charity. Check out the silent auction items and enter the 50/50 draw.

For more information about the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s or to register, go to support.alzheimers.ca or call Brad Scheck at 250-334-6639.
