Chair needed for walk

A search is on for a volunteer to chair the 2018 Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s in Vernon.

“Our Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s volunteer committee chairs are not only instrumental to raising funds to support people affected by dementia, they are truly helping to ignite a social movement,” said Angie Kok, of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “By bringing together the Vernon community, you are helping to ignite a movement to make dementia not just someone else’s problem, but everyone’s concern.”

The Sunday, May 6 walk is part of the country’s biggest fundraiser for battling Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Funds raised stay in B.C. and support local programs and services, as well as enabling research into the causes and cure of the disease, according to a press release.

It’s estimated that 70,000 British Columbians live with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.

Those interested in the chairperson's position or in volunteering can contact Stacy Ashton or call 604-742-4937.
