Dear Friend,

This May, we’re challenging YOU to help raise crucial funds and awareness by walking 260,000 steps during the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s!

You can tackle this challenge as an individual or come together with your family and friends to work towards reaching your step goal as a team. Help people living with dementia and their care partners know that they do not walk on this journey alone.

Thank you to Jackpot City Sarnia!

A heartfelt thank you to our Community Partner Jackpot City Sarnia! Throughout the pandemic, we continued to receive funding from them, which has allowed us to continue providing quality programming to our clients and care partners. There are over 3,000 people in Sarnia-Lambton living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. If you factor in care partners and other family members affected, that number swells to 9,000. We are grateful for Jackpot City!

It's up to all of us to come together now.
