Thank you for supporting me in the 2021 IG Wealth Management Alzheimer Walk and Run VIRTUAL CHALLENGE! By supporting me you help provide vital services and programs for local caregivers and people living with dementia.
Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
This year more than ever, those suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia, and those caring for such individuals, need our support. The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected the elderly and those living in long-term care homes. It has meant that families have lost vital support programs and are still experiencing the negative effects of social distancing requirements. The need for such support is evident from the fact that demand for the Alzheimer's Society's programs and services was up by 47% in 2020!
I am running to support these families. I am also running to remember my own family's experience with Alzheimer's, to remember my late Aunt Carolyn and Ian's Grandpa Bud, and for my children, so that they may grow up in a world where Alzheimer's and dementia do not exist. So that they may never have to watch a loved one become a shadow of their former lively self.
Please help me support local caregivers, support services, education and care that is accessed by thousands of local families each year.
