Chilliwack – The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, presented by Go Auto
The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, presented by Go Auto, is the largest fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. The Walk provides an impactful way for British Columbians to celebrate and remember people in their lives who have been affected by dementia, while raising valuable funds and awareness to create change.
Each year we honour someone within the Fraser Valley who has been affected by dementia or who has valuably contributed to the lives of people living with the disease. This year, in Chilliwack we are honouring Taylor Ogston and Karen Stewart.
Taylor first observed changes in his way of thinking three and a half years ago. What was initially diagnosed as mild cognitive impairment (MCI) soon progressed to early-stage dementia.
Along with their family, Taylor and Karen have found support through the Alzheimer Society of B.C. They have regular phone check-ins with Society staff, have joined support groups and workshops. They also participate in a Minds in Motion® group.
There is no person Taylor Ogston would prefer by his side on his dementia journey than his wife, Karen Stewart. After 34 years of marriage, the couple finds happiness in their love for one another.
Get your family, friends and colleagues together and join us on Sunday, May 28 to help fund vital programs and services for people affected by dementia. Learn more at alzbc.org/walk-bc.
