The Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s is still three months away but registrations are being sought for the fundraiser.
The event is one of Canada’s largest fundraisers for the disease.
The May 7th Prince George walk will honour Iris Vhal, who was diagnosed with the disease a few years ago.
Funds raised from this year’s event will go towards education services and support programs in Prince George.
Last year in BC, over 800-thousand dollars was raised for the event. Organizers say they hope the event raises more awareness to make the city a more dementia friendly community.
