Walk for Alzheimers | Thorold Blackhawks Support Charity

It was nice to see the members of the Thorold Blackhawks team up to support the Walk for Alzheimers held at Brock University on January 21. The community event raised more than $70,000 for Early Stage programs provided by the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region. All monies raised remain in the Niagara Region to support local 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. More than 300 walkers participated in the fully accessible walk route for the Walk for Alzheimers .
