Walk for Alzheimer's | May 12 & May 19
Village at Smith Creek participated in a brand new "Alzheimer Walk - in a box" program. Our Residents enjoyed delightful garden walks, homemade goodies and raised funds for the Alzheimer Society of B.C..
Baptist Housing is a proud supporter of Walk for Alzheimer. This event is Canada's biggest fundraiser for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.Monies raised support programs and services in your community that improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their families, and support other activities like education and public awareness.Walks take place every year in 150 communities across Canada. In 2014, 24,000 walkers participated, raising $4.5 million.
Thank you to everyone who supported the walk including our Residents and Team Members. If you missed it... you are still in time to join us in Kelowna on May 12 or May 19!
