Community Spirit

Walk raised $24k for local Alzheimer's Society

Submitted by Gail Johnson


n behalf of the Fraser Valley Walk for Memories committee, I would like to thank you so much for your excellent coverage of our 10th annual Walk which was held on January 29th. Your story and photos were excellent, and enjoyed and very much appreciated by everyone.

We had a great turnout, and at last count the total raised was $24,000. This amount has been increasing over the last few weeks and we're sure it will continue to do so for several more months. All of the funds raised stay right here in our community to educate and support those affected by Alzheimer's Disease and related dementias.

Once again, thanks so much to the Valley Voice for your support of our Walk (and other events) over the last several years! We will be looking forward to seeing you on January 27 2013 for our 11th Walk for Memories.
