This is the 16th year that Dave will be running in memory of Judy’s mother Winnie. Over the years, 6 other of her family members have been inflicted with dementia. While none of them were living in Calgary, we were able to provide support and links to the Alzheimer Society of Calgary’s website and the Dementia Connections magazine.
We continue to volunteer in a variety of roles for the Alzheimer Society of Calgary. Below is a link to a story that Judy wrote about why we do this.
Alzheimer Society of Calgary has been on the leading edge of therapy programs. While walking along the sea wall in West Vancouver in June, we met a local lady working on her plot in the community garden. She mentioned her husband has dementia and is in a care facility. We were able to provide information about the programs in Calgary area. She was most grateful as she wanted to see her husband more involved in meaningful activities.
Thank you for your consideration in supporting me in the Investors Group Alzheimer Walk & Run! By supporting me you help provide vital services and programs for local people impacted by dementia. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
