The Alzheimer’s Society of BC is hosting its 5th Annual Investor’s Group Walk for Memories on Sunday January 26th. The walk serves as the Alzheimer’s Society’s biggest fundraising campaign, where proceeds will support those who have been impacted by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. In addition, it is the society’s hope that the walk will act as an opportunity to reduce the stigmas associated with dementias.

On behalf of the Graduate Gerontology Caucus, we would like to invite you to support this campaign with us – either through donating, walking, or both! This year our fundraising goal is $3000! If you would like to donate please visit this website. Any donation amount is truly appreciated! 

The walk is scheduled from 1pm to 3pm around the Stanley Park Sea Wall, with the starting point being the Stanley Park Pavilion. For more details on the walk, visit http://walkformemories.com

Early dinner: To cap off a great day, we would like to invite you to join us for a post-walk meal at White Spot located at 1616 W. Georgia Street at 3:30 pm, reservations under the name ‘Sarah’.

We encourage you to show your school spirit by sporting any SFU clothing and/or gear you may have!

Please RSVP for the either the walk OR the walk & early dinner by Wednesday January 22nd to Sarah by specifying which part(s) you’d like to join us for. Friends and family members also welcome!

Thank you to those who have so generously given, and we look forward to seeing you out at the Walk for Memories on Sunday the 26th!
