I'm participating in the BMO Vancouver Marathon on May 6th to raise money for the individuals and families who are impacted by Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. There are currently 564,000 Canadians living with dementia and that number is expected to grow to 937,000 in the next 15 years. With my dad recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I’ve learned firsthand about the debilitating nature of this disease and how much it affects the whole family.
Funds raised go toward the search for the cure, and toward providing services to help those affected by dementia. For more detailed information about the Alzheimer's Society of BC, please visit www.alzheimerbc.org.
Please help me reach my goal of $30,000. Donations of any amount would be appreciated.
Macquarie will match your donation, so it will go twice as far.
There are no event costs, so 100% of your donation goes to the charity.
Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more.
With the tax refund and Macquarie’s matching, the value of your donation will be approximately three times what it actually costs you.
Thank you for your support,
