Walk organizers seek participants

The annual Investors Group Walk for Memories is fast approaching and needs participants.

For those looking to support a good cause while enjoying a stroll along downtown Nanaimo’s Harbourfront Walkway, the event takes place Jan. 27 and follows a 3.5-kilometre route starting at the Nanaimo Yacht Club.

Money raised supports the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s Nanaimo services, including support and information groups and an early intervention program that helps families dealing with a diagnosis of dementia.

An estimated one in three people in Nanaimo know someone with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
