LETTER: Thank you all for walking

To everyone who helped make the 2014 Investor’s Group Walk for Memories a success: your contributions make a difference.

Thank you, Nelson for walking! To everyone who helped make the 2014 Investor’s Group Walk for Memories a success: your contributions make a difference to those in our community who are living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.

Twenty-three events were held across the province on January 26. In our community, we raised more than $8,000 — and counting — to support the work of the Alzheimer Society of BC.

If you’d like to add a donation to show your support, please visit www.walkformemories.com today.

Funds raised not only support research into the causes, treatments and cure, but also allow the Alzheimer Society of BC to continue to offer valuable programs and services to impacted individuals and help these people in our community adapt and live well at every stage of the disease.

Special thanks go to our dedicated volunteer committee for the countless hours each member contributed and to the care givers and family for sharing their journey through this disease with our community.

I’d also like to thank your event sponsors Investors Group, and our friends at:

Pacific Insight Electronics, Save On Foods, Kootenay Lake Electric, Safeway, Cottonwood Kitchens, Vince DeVito, Georama, Hume Hotel, Maglio Building Centre, Toyota Village, Ted Allen’s Jewellery, Nelson Brewery Co., Nelson Chrysler, Nelson Ford, Oso Negro and Connect Hearing for their generous donations to the silent auction.

We look forward to seeing you next year on January 25, 2015. Visit www.walkformemories.com for more information.
