Walk the Talk! Sign up for the Walk for Alzheimer’s
Be a voice for change and fundraise for Alzheimer’s and other dementias
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sudbury, ON – April 12, 2017 – Three out of four Canadians know someone with dementia. It touches many homes in every community. But four out of four Canadians can take action.
What can you do? On Sunday, June 11, 2017 take part in the Walk for Alzheimer’s in Sudbury, Espanola or North Bay. You can start raising funds now, by registering online a twww.walkforalzheimers.ca or pick up a pledge form at your local society.
The Walk for Alzheimer’s is the Society’s biggest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. All monies raised stay in your community where they’re needed most. When you join a Walk, you will be supporting essential programs and services that help people with dementia and their caregivers live better today.
To register for a Walk for Alzheimer’s near you or if you simply want to donate online, get started at www.walkforalzheimers.ca .
Last year, thousands of enthusiastic walkers raised $4.7 million across Canada. This year, we want to beat that goal and hit $5 million.
With more than 25,000 Canadians diagnosed with dementia each year and no cure yet, the need to support people with dementia and their caregivers, has never been greater.
The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op is creating independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media. Contact the Sudbury Working Group at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Facebook.
Support local grassroots media - get a membership! Our goal is to raise $2000 per year to pay local writers for local content and support emerging writers. Help us reach that goal. Download a membership form here.
We are able to pay for a limited number of strong local pieces. Contact us to pitch an idea, or for story ideas.
We encourage local grassroots groups to submit content about their work, issues and events. We also have resources available to help grassroots groups get their message out. Find out more here.
