Alzheimers walk a success in Alberni

The Investors Group Walk for Memories was a success, the event chair says.

To the Editor,

Thanks for walking, Port Alberni!  To everyone who helped make the 2012 Investors Group Walk for Memories a success: You’ve helped make a difference for people in our community who are living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

Through our event and 23 others held around the province on Jan. 29, we’ve raised more than $690,000 – and counting – to support the work of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

This amount exceeds our record-breaking totals from last year.
