His life has been touched by Alzheimer’s: his father had it, and his mother is in the early stages. Organized by former Nelson fire chief Simon Grypma (left), the walk aims to raise awareness about the disease. Organizers are inviting all of honouree Bob Hawes’ family and friends to come out in support.

This is the first year the walk will be held at Lakeside Park. They aim to raise at least $18,000 to match last year’s total they already have over $5,000.
