The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s flagship fundraiser and is a way British Columbians can celebrate and remember people in their lives who have been affected by dementia, while they raise valuable funds and awareness to create change.
Each year we honour a member of the local community who has been affected by dementia or who has valuably contributed to the lives of people living with the disease in the Comox Valley. This year we honour Linda Hodgkin, a member of the community who has been affected by dementia. “When I realized it wasn’t something that was going to go away, I was both angry and sad because I still had so many things that I wanted to do,” says Linda, who credits the Society’s Shaping the Journey with teaching her that developing dementia wasn’t her fault. “Try not to let it overwhelm you,” Linda says. “Live your life and be positive.”
Get your family, friends and colleagues together and join us for an amazing day at the 2019 IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s.
