The Alzheimer Society of Canada is pleased to announce that the annual Walk for Alzheimer’s has been newly branded as the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s as they have become a national sponsor. The Alzheimer’s walk is a nationwide fundraiser to support the efforts of Alzheimer Societies across Canada. Last year over 25 thousand people participated in the walk and raised over $4.9 million. This year the walk will be beginning in May and extending into June as a concentrated effort to come together as an organization and align the event with all societies in Canada. Jeff Carney, the President and CEO of Investors Group extends his support to the Alzheimer Society and explains that the decision to partner was based in empathy; “We all know someone touched by this disease. Through our clients, we see first-hand the emotional and financial challenges this critical health issue presents for families.” Embracing this partnership will foster a community of foundational respect and offer critical funding to the Alzheimer Society.
