For the past five years, the efforts of Investors Group Financial Service in the province’s communities has paid off to the tune of $2.6 million for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

The company is the title sponsor in the Investors Group Walk for Memories, the society’s largest annual fundraising event.

The support includes providing meeting spaces, joining volunteer planning committees, participating as a team, fundraising and promoting the event.

“We greatly value all that they do to support our cause and to help ensure we can in turn help British Columbians living with dementia,” said Jean Blake, chief executive officer of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Jane Hope, support and education coordinator for the society for north and central Vancouver Island,  expressed her thanks to Investors Group with a framed print by B.C. artist Ted Harrison to Grant Starko of Investors Group in Nanaimo.

“We are proud of our Investors Group consultants, directors and employees around the province who are making it a priority to give back to the community,” says Sharon Moskalyk, vice-president, financial services, Investors Group.

The 2012 Walk for Memories takes place Jan. 29 in Nanaimo and  22 other communities around B.C. and is dedicated to all caregivers.
