Alzheimer's is a disease that a high percentage of Canadians struggle with, and you may know someone, family or friend, who is as well.

I was very lucky to be able to attend the Alzheimer's walk today at Eastview Place in Altona.

The walk started with a short ceremony where speakers like Janet Enns, Leona Nickel, Mayor Melvin Klassen, and Alzheimer Society of Manitoba’s CEO, Wendy Shettler, shared stories about how it has personally affected family members and what walking in support means to them.

Karen Braun, an Altona local, received an award from Shettler for all her years as a volunteer for Alzheimer's. Only one award is handed out to a Manitoba resident each year. Marking 25 years as a volunteer, Braun has raised $27,000 in that time!

Donations are accepted at any time and can either be made online or by calling Kathy Fehr at the regional office in Winkler.
