Date: Walk Your Way anytime during the month of May!
Event Location: Wherever you choose! Walk Your Way!
Our world has changed due to COVID-19, but one thing holds true – the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories remains committed to supporting people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia and those who care for them.
We are asking you to get creative and Walk Your Way so we can continue to offer the vital programs and services that are needed for people living with dementia in our communities. We are challenging our walkers to be as creative as possible – and have fun - while respecting current public health and safety guidelines!
