A annual community event is about to get a 21st-century upgrade with a new mobile application for smart phones.
Participants in the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s provincewide Investors Group Walk for Memories fundraiser now have a fast, convenient and secure way to collect pledges for the Jan. 27 walk.
“The new application makes it even easier for our dedicated volunteers and donors to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias,” said Jean Blake, society CEO. “This event has long been a community-driven event, and participants gather pledges from their friends, family and colleagues to support a cause that matters to them. The application makes this process as simple as pushing a button.”
The application is for registered participants in the 2013 Investors Group Walk for Memories, and is available for iPhone and Android phones. Participants can use the application to process credit card and PayPal donations quickly and securely online, communicate with their sponsors via e-mail, and monitor the progress of their fundraising efforts.
The Investors Group Walk for Memories takes place in 23 communities this year, including a new location – Nanaimo Yacht Club – in Nanaimo.
