The Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce will once again hosting their annual walk later this month.

The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is set to take place on Saturday, May 27, 2023 and aims to raise funds that allow the Society to offer programs and services to meet the needs of people living with dementia and their caregivers in Grey and Bruce counties.

From a May 15 media release from the Alzheimer's Society of Grey-Bruce, the number of people in Canada living with dementia is rising rapidly and by the year 2050 is expected to reach 1.7 million. As that number increases so too does the need for services.

The May 27 Walk is taking place in Saugeen Shores, Owen Sound, Hanover and Thornbury and anyone interested in participating can register as an individual, as a team captain, a team member.

Start fundraising by reaching out to family, friends, neighbours and colleages; and by sharing your reasons for walking on social media using the hashtag #IGWalkForAlz.

Registration will take place at 9 a.m. May 27 with the Walk set to start at 10 a.m.

In Saugeen Shores, participants are asked to meet at Fairy Lake, 280 High Street in Southampton. In Owen Sound at Grey Sauble Conservation Area & Arboretum, 237897 Inglis Falls Road. In Hanover at the Sulphur Spring Conservation Area, 261123 Grey Road 28 (just south of Hanover), and in Thornbury at Bayview Park, 106 Bay Street East.
