My Story…

The dementia journey is often likened to a marathon and not a sprint. As a Support and Education Coordinator with the Alzheimer Society of BC the training I have been doing in preparation for this half-marathon has given me so much more respect for those affected by dementia. They have taught me so much and therefore it is an honor and privilege for me to run for each one of them on June 23.


When you participate in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge for the Alzheimer Society of B.C., the time you spend and the money you raise helps us change the conversation about dementia, the experience of living with dementia and the future for people affected by it. Participating in the challenge helps ensure people affected by dementia are not alone, by educating and mobilizing a broader community of care around them and supporting valuable research.
