A month-long fundraiser encouraging people to host a coffee break in support of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. kicked off Thursday at the White Spot in Semiahmoo Shopping Centre.
Vancouver Canucks legend Orland Kurtenbach joined Surrey resident Jim Mann, who has Alzheimer’s, Sept. 15 to launch Coffee Break.
Money raised through the initiative supports local programs and services for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
Mann was diagnosed at the age of 58 and has benefited from education and support programs through the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Resource Centre in White Rock.
He also serves as a volunteer director on both the B.C. and national federation boards for the Alzheimer Society.
