The BrainyActive Walk for Dementia

About This Program

It’s time….to walk again! We know you loved the Walk for Dementia and we’re back! Join this year’s Walk at our new dementia-inclusive Dementia Society Centre to support the Ministry-funded dementia education and support organization in our area—The Dementia Society.

More than anytime in our 40+ year history, people need our help. We need your help. With dementia on the rise, more people are asking for our help, more often. But Ministry funding is not enough, not nearly. We need your help to raise the funds needed to continue providing the education, support and programming sought by unprecedented numbers of people impacted by dementia in our region. The money we raise here stays here to directly support our free-access services for people in Ottawa and Renfrew County.

Register now to save the date, and ask your family and friends to support you in your Walk and The Dementia Society’s mission. You can help ensure that people living in Ottawa and Renfrew County receive the expert compassionate support and services that enhance quality of life in the face of dementia.
