As a nation and as individuals, we have been through a lot. However, after a year and a half of isolation, we are finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel as Ontario gradually reopens. This means that we can safely get back to our favourite activities and gather with our loved ones. The length of time we have had to spend apart makes coming together again so meaningful and a cause for celebration!
As we celebrate coming back together, why not make your gathering even more meaningful by turning it into a fundraiser?
This fall, The Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region is launching Anything for Alzheimer’s. The concept of Anything for Alzheimer’s is simple, all you need to do is turn an activity or a get-together that you are already planning to do into a fundraiser. Are you planning a neighbourhood barbeque? Put a container out next to the burgers and ask people to consider donating. Are you the most dedicated weekend warrior in town? Set a workout challenge for yourself and use that as your fundraiser. Or do you just want to have coffee and catch up with your friends or colleagues? Host a Coffee Break and ask everyone to bring a donation. The ideas are endless, it can be anything as simple as a get-together with friends, as challenging as a sunrise polar dip or as creative as dying your hair green. The only limit is your imagination!
One of the biggest questions you may have is “What is the difference between Coffee Break and Anything for Alzheimer’s?” The answer to that question is Coffee Break (our traditional fundraiser) is a great fundraiser to do FOR Anything for Alzheimer’s, but there are also many other things that you can do. “What will you do for Alzheimer’s?” it could be a Coffee Break, or a Wine Tasting, or a run, or even dying your hair green, whatever you are passionate about, there is a fundraiser to match!
Whether you would like to do a Coffee Break or another fundraiser the signup process is the same, simply click here to register and support the almost 11,000 people living with dementia in Niagara.
