IG Wealth Management Walk for Memories


Walk with us for the 30th Anniversary!

The IG Wealth Management Walk for Memories is Canada’s largest one-day fundraising event raising funds for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. This unique INDOOR Walk takes place in the underground PATH of Toronto, starting and finishing at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel.

Every year, for the past 30 years, thousands of walkers have come together to walk and to challenge themselves to raise vital funds for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. All funds raised help to support over 48,000 people living with dementia in Toronto as well as the countless caregivers, families and friends.

Connect with families, organizations and volunteers in your community to raise funds for the Alzheimer Society while honouring those with dementia. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Walk, we invite you to take a walk down memory lane with us, to rediscover decades past and look towards what the future holds.
