Helping families

Surrey, White Rock, Delta and Langley residents helped raise more than $630,000 for B.C. families living with dementia, through participation in the Jan. 30 Investors Group Walk for Memories.

The amount, along with participation numbers, is a record, organizers announced Feb. 24. A total of 20 events were held last month throughout the province in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Funds raised help people impacted by the disease have the confidence and skills to maintain quality of life, and support research into the causes, more effective treatments and a cure.
