The IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s is the Alzheimer Society of B.C.'s flagship fundraiser and is a way British Columbians can celebrate and remember people in their lives who have been affected by dementia, while they raise valuable funds and awareness to create change. Each year we honour a member of the local community who has been affected by dementia or who has valuably contributed to the lives of people living with the disease in the TriCities and Ridge Meadows.
This year we honour Arvie Bourgeault, a member of the community who has been affected by dementia. Arvie cared for her husband Bob, who lived at home with Alzheimer’s disease. Arvie now advocates for people affected by dementia through her roles with Dementia-Friendly Task Force, Seniors’ Network Table and the CEED Centre in Maple Ridge, where she attends a social group for people affected by dementia and encourages others to do the same. “Education is key,” she says.
