On behalf of honourees Stan and Shirley Fryer, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who helped make the 2014 Investors Group Walk for Memories a success.

Twenty-three events were held across the province, including White Rock, Surrey and North Delta, where we raised about $48,000 and we’re still counting. A total of 350 people joined our Walk for Memories. Those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers are grateful for your support. If you would like to add a donation, please visit walkformemories.com

Special thanks goes to our dedicated volunteer committee for the countless hours each member contributed. We also thank the Stan Fryer family for sharing their journey through this disease with the community.

Finally I would like to thank our event sponsor Investors Group. We look forward to seeing you next year: Jan. 25, 2015.
