Thank you for supporting our team Making Strides in the 2020 IG Wealth Management 5 KM Alzheimer Walk & Run!
Right now there are more than 17,000 Calgarians and over 747,000 Canadians living with this disease. If your a woman, your lifetime risk of Alzheimer's disease is 1 in 4. If your a man, it's 1 in 6. Dementia (the most common being Alzheimer's disease) affects a person's thinking, memory and behaviour. It's a fatal, progressive and deneratvie disease of the brain primarily affecting vulnerable seniors. There's currently no known cause or cure. For every person with a diagnosis, 10 to 12 are directly impacted. For many, they don't know where to turn and end up going through this journey on their own with little help. This could be a family member, your neighbour, your co-worker, people at the coffee shop and anyone that you come into contact with on a daily basis. Everyone has a story.
All funds raised at the 2020 Wealth Management Alzheimer Walk and Run go directly to providing education, care and support for impacted families. The difference you make is tangible and immediate.
