The Walk for Alzheimer’s will be held throughout Quebec. This event is a major fundraiser in Canada to fight and raise awareness about the Alzheimer’s disease and related diseases. Currently, over 564,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimer’s disease or a similar disease.
Everyone in the Outaouais, especially in the Pontiac, are cordially invited to take part in the Walk for Alzheimer’ Day to be held on May 28 in Gatineau. Anne Villeneuve, Executive Director of the Alzheimer Society of the Outaouais in Quebec says that that this event is family oriented and that the goal is not only to raise funds but also to raise awareness and deflate the myths surrounding the disease:
All donations raised during the Walk for Alzheimer’ will be used to support programs and support services in your community, including The Day Center in Shawville.
