WHAT

The Alzheimer Society Walk for Memories® is a province-wide event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and education. Held annually in more than 65 communities across Ontario, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to help support people living with dementia. Together, we can walk for a better future.

The Walk for Memories unites the entire community — family, friends, co-workers, social and religious groups and more — in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease. While there is no fee to register, each participant is expected to fundraise in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness. Individuals that raise $50 or more will receive a Walk For Memories T-Shirt; raise $250 or more receive $20 Devonshire Dollars; raise $500 or more receive a Tim Horton’s Home Brewer; raise $1000 or more your name is placed in a Draw for a Kindle Fire HDX Tablet. Teams that raise $1000 or more will be invited to a Pizza Party at the Alzheimer Society of Windsor and each will receive a $10 Tim Horton’s Card.

When you participate in the Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission-related initiatives of care, support and research. In addition, your actions, both through fundraising and participating in the event, help to change the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in your local community.

Take the first step to a world without Alzheimer’s by participating in the Walk For Memories. You can register online and you will have access to a wide range of tools and support through your Participant Center, ensuring a successful and fulfilling experience.
