Over the past eighteen years, Ascent for Alzheimer’s has been an incredible success. The Alzheimer Society of B.C. would like to send a heartfelt thank-you to all of you, our volunteers, participants, donors and sponsors, who have made it possible for Ascent to raise over $2.8 million dollars in support of support services, education resources and research into causes of and possible cures for dementia. After careful consideration, and in discussion with key stakeholders, the Society has decided to discontinue the Ascent for Alzheimer’s. We are dedicated to making sure that our events are sustainable and focused on British Columbia. Thank you once more to all who contributed to its success over the years. The Society will now focus on signature events that allow for broader participation, while providing hikers the opportunity to contribute through Anything for Alzheimer’s. Information on this program can be provided by contacting the Society at 604-681-6530 or by visiting Anything for Alzheimer’s.
