The Alzheimer Society of PEI (ASPEI) hosted its annual IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s on May 29th and would like to graciously thank everyone for their support!
For the past two years, the Walk has been held virtually because of Covid-19 precautions. This year, the Alzheimer Society was pleased to host four in-person Walks on a beautiful, sunny Sunday in Charlottetown, Montague, Summerside, and O’Leary, as well as an Island-wide scavenger hunt throughout the month of May. As of July 14th, including sponsorships and donations, the Walk has raised $34,496 and counting, nearing this year’s goal of $37,500!
ASPEI would like to thank their title sponsor IG Wealth Management, and all of the local businesses who sponsored the Walk, sold forget-me-not cutouts, donated, and promoted Walk events. A special shout-out to The Local Pub and Oyster Bar for donating a portion of the proceeds for certain menu items sold during the month of May to the Alzheimer Society. To all of the volunteers and walk participants, ASPEI could not do what they do without you!
Next year the Alzheimer Society is planning to return to their usual Walk event(s) with guest speakers, fun activities, a group start, and all the excitement that usually encompasses Walk day! Thanks again for all the support to help Islanders affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.
