Registration is now open for the Walk for Alzheimer’s on Sunday, Jan. 21 at Brock University and we hope you’ll consider joining us this year. All monies raised remain in the Niagara Region to support local Alzheimer’s programs and services provided by the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region that improves the quality of life for people living with dementia and their families, and support other activities like education and public awareness. The Walk for Alzheimer’s event promises a fully accessible walk route, free parking, a shuttle from the parking lot to the walk area (the walk is inside Brock University), great entertainment as well as a health and information Fair with community partners that share information promoting an overall sense of well-being and maintaining a healthy Mind, Body, and Spirit.
