Letter: Walk for Alzheimer’s thanks

To the editor:

Thank you, Kelowna, 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.

There were 23 events held across the province on Jan. 26. In our community, we raised more than $25,000—and counting—to support the work of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

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 B.C. 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 Catterson family for sharing their journey through this disease with our community.

I’d also like to thank our event sponsors Investors Group.

We look forward to seeing you next year on Jan. 25, 2015.

Pearse Walsh,

chairperson,
