IG Wealth Management walks in Alexandria and Rockland raised a combined $13,500 last weekend for the Alzheimer Society.

The walk is Canada’s biggest fundraiser for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Walks took place in Rockland at Parc Alain-Potvin Park on Saturday, May 14 and in Alexandria beginning at the Tim Horton’s Dome, on Sunday, May 15.

Funds raised from the two walks will go to support local programs and services offered by the Alzheimer Society of Cornwall & District, such as caregiver support, education and the adult day program in Forest Park and Hawkesbury.
