Evergreen's Walk for Alzheimer's - May 1 and 2

Hello Evergreen Family and Friends,

Evergreen is partnering with the Alzheimer’s Society of BC and will be holding our own Walk for Alzheimer’s on May 1 and 2 here at Evergreen. All money raised during the walks will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC.

On May 1 Residents and families will be invited to join us for a shorter walk (1/2 km or 1 km) in the Terraces back walking loop. You can walk any time from 9:30 am – 11:30 am. Entrance to the back walking loop is through the Terraces T2 Oxford community. We encourage you to bring your loved one along if possible. Residents can walk, or roll if they are in wheelchairs.

On May 2 everyone who wishes to walk a longer route can join us at the Southmere Village Park (across 16th Avenue) and walk either 3 km or 5 km around the lovely ponds. You can walk any time from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm.

Sign-up and Donation sheets are available from the Terraces Reception, or the Recreation Therapist on your community. We hope that you will join us for one of the walks, and bring your loved one along if possible. We will hold this event even if it is raining, so please dress for the weather. Pets are also welcome to walk with you. If you have any questions about this event, please do not hesitate to contact Janice Kirlik at 604-541-3837.
