About the Cause

2021 has been a difficult year for local families impacted by dementia. As a result of the pandemic, many caregivers and people living with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia have lost vital support programs such as Adult Day Programs and Home Care. The added pressure of having to cope alone has created some very challenging circumstances for some families.

Funds raised by the IG Wealth Management Alzheimer Walk & Run VIRTUAL CHALLENGE go directly toward providing essential support, education and care accessed by thousands of people each year. Your support means that the Alzheimer Society of Calgary team can continue connecting with local people and helping ensure families can access the support they need.

This year, even though we can't get together in person, we'll be walking and running our own routes around the city and beyond. Join us on Thanksgiving Weekend and take strides for dementia!


Impact

Overwhelmed and overflowing with questions, many people impacted by dementia don’t know where to turn or where to begin.

Unfortunately, many may end up going through this journey on their own with little support. This could be your neighbour, your coworker, people at the coffee shop and anyone that you come into contact with on a daily basis.

We are working to reduce the stigma surrounding the condition by raising awareness and by encouraging conversations about dementia.

The Alzheimer Society of Calgary is here for you. Providing guidance and advice at any point along your journey, we have 40+ years of experience supporting people impacted by dementia.
