Walk for Memories 2013

Seventy-seven people signed up and took to the streets during the Alzheimer’s/Investors Group Walk for Memories held in Barriere on January 27.

All ages of folks were in attendance for the start from the Barriere Senior’s Centre, some brought their dogs along, and the community’s mascot, Barrie the Bear, also turned out to help with the fundraising walk.

Cadets carried the flags and led the group, as walkers followed a route that took them past the elementary school, up Barkley, and back down Barriere Town Road to the Senior’s Centre for a light lunch, socializing,  a silent auction, a raffle for a laptop and other items, as well as a number of door prizes that were given out.

This year’s Walk participants included individuals from many areas of the valley, including a group from Clearwater.

The Alzheimer’s/Investors Group Walk for Memories, 2013, was dedicated to Barriere resident Jean Hambrook.

The Walk raises awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and raises funds for people in your community who are living with dementia. The Alzheimer Society of B.C. supports current research directed at finding the causes and the cure for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and improving the lives of the more than 70,000 individuals and families in our province who are living with the disease.
