Approximately 150 Saultiites laced up their walking shoes on Sunday afternoon to take part in the annual IG Wealth  Management Walk for Alzheimer’s at White Pines Secondary School, raising $48,596.37 for the local Alzheimer’s Society chapter.

The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is Canada’s biggest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and takes place in more than 400 communities across the country. In 2019, Canadians participating in the Walk raised $6.2 million.

These funds will go toward local programs and services that improve quality of life for people living with dementia and their families as well as support awareness and education about dementia.
