Although the in-person IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s was cancelled, a virtual option that will be held on Sunday, May 31 will take its place.
“While we know that the world has greatly changed over the last few months, the Alzheimer Society of BC would like to focus on bringing communities together virtually and sharing the supports that are still available to people living with dementia,” said Laurel Wright, the local walk chair. “We are trying to spread the word about this new virtual walk as much as we can, as this was the inaugural event for our community.”
The walk will be streamed online at www.walkforalzheimers.ca at 9 a.m. You can register and fundraise at the same link. People are encouraged to participate online however works for them. Some ideas posted on the site are: do jumping jacks; lift weights; do a dance; stroll around the block; take the stairs; do yoga and meditate. From there, people can take a photo or video and upload social media with the hashtag #IGWalkForAlz.
