HALIFAX – The Annual Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia’s Walk for Alzheimer’s is slated for May 1, 2016, and Shannex is proud to be the presenting sponsor again this year. The walk will be held at the Cunard Centre in Halifax, Centre 200 in Sydney and new this year, Wolfville’s Waterfront Park.
Sadly, more than 17,000 Atlantic Canadians are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia. This heartwarming event aims to raise awareness and funds for programs, services, education and research, all of which will help support the families and loved ones suffering from these debilitating diseases.
“Walk for Alzheimer’s is an annual fundraiser that is near and dear to the hearts of many people at Shannex,” says Jason Shannon, President and COO. “Every day, we see first-hand the challenges of living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia. We understand how difficult it can be, so we’re extremely happy to support this wonderful cause.”
Again this year, Shannex is putting together an impressive corporate team and they are eager to make a difference. The goal is to have an even bigger showing than in past years and they have their hopes set on surpassing fundraising efforts from past years.
Getting involved in the Walk for Alzheimer’s is easy! Each A-Team member who raises a minimum of $20 will receive a free gift to distinguish them as part of the A-Team during the walk.
