for walking, Chilliwack! To everyone who helped make the 2012 Investors
Group Walk for Memories a success: You’ve helped make a difference for
people in our community who are living with Alzheimer’s disease or other
Through our event and 23 others held around the province on Jan. 29,
we’ve raised more than $690,000 – and counting – to support the work of
the Alzheimer Society of B.C. This amount exceeds our record-breaking
totals from last year!
Funds raised help people who are impacted by the disease have the confidence
and skills to maintain quality of life, and support research into the
causes, more effective treatments and a cure.
Special thanks to our dedicated volunteer committee for the countless hours
each of you has contributed, and to the Kostrzewa family for sharing their
journey through this disease with our community.
I’d also like to thank all our local community sponsors and Investors Group.
We’ll see you in 2013! Save the date – Jan. 27, 2013! Visit
