Tammy Watson from HomeCare West and I have organized a group of walkers to walk in the Alzheimer’s ‘Walk for Memories” on Jan 29, 2012.
I will be walking in memory of my dear Mom who passed away 5 years ago due to Alzheimer’s disease. I’m taking a step forward in the fight against this disease and I would like to request your support in my fundraising to help the Alzheimer’s Society work towards finding a cure.
I have set a fundraising goal of $1 per meter for the 5km walk or $5000.
Please show your support by pledging our team with an online donation at the WalkforMemories.com website.

Calling all Walkers, Hikers & Urban Polers!
The Alzheimer ‘Walk for Memories’ is a 5km walk that helps to raise awareness and funds to provide support and services to those impacted by this terrible disease. Funds also go towards research into the causes and the cure.
1 in 3 Canadians knows someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. Who do YOU know? Who will YOU be walking for?
Our walk is on the beautiful Stanley Park seawall and will take us from the Stanley Park Pavilion and around Brockton Point for a total of 5 km. Do the full trail or as much as you feel up to!
Bring your family, friends and neighbours – all are welcome. If you are not able to walk, consider coming out to cheer on the Natural Trekking / HomeCare West Team!
Together we will make a difference!
