Why we walk
The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s has grown to be one of Canada’s top 10 largest fundraising charity events. Since 2015, it has raised over $41 million for people living with dementia and their care partners. In addition to raising funds for the Alzheimer Society of Canada (ASC), IG also offers financial empowerment workshops tailored to the unique concerns of those impacted by the condition.
The number of Canadians living with Alzheimer’s is estimated to reach close to 1 million by 2030. We need to ensure they have the support, education and resources they need to help navigate their health journey, making the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s all the more critical.
Those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia count on ASC for support and ASC counts on you to help make a difference.
While you may not be able to walk with someone, you can walk for someone. Who will you walk for?
