The Alzheimer Society of Manitoba is hosting the Investors Group Memory Walk June 13 at The Forks.
The walk is in support of all those living with dementia and their families. There are currently over 20,000 people in Manitoba with the disease, the society said.
The rate of those with the disease is also increasing; in 2012 there were 4,400 new cases. The society promises this year’s walk will be bigger than ever.
"It is unbelievable how this event has grown over the past few years. It is our largest annual province-wide public fundraiser, and last year we hit a milestone with over 1,000 people out to the Winnipeg walk and over $280,000 raised province-wide," Wendy Schettler, CEO of the society, said in a release.
Proceeds from registrations and fundraising will go to the society as they support those with dementia and their families.
