Rain or shine, residents in Penticton will be uniting on Saturday for the Penticton Alzheimer Fundraiser Walk.
Scheduled for 10 a.m., the walk will have attendees starting at the Penticton Peach, located at 185 Lakeshore Dr. W, and continuing along to the S.S. Sicamous, at 1099 Lakeshore Dr. W, and back again. Donations raised by this event will benefit the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia.
According to organizer Jennifer Stickney, those who wish to register the day of the event should plan to arrive shortly before 10 a.m. She said there will be no set pace for the walk, and those with mobility issues do not have to go the whole distance.
Those wishing to donate or register for the walk in advance can click here. For more information about the walk, which is championed by Stickney since three out of four of her grandparents have lived with dementia, click here.
Stickney will also be running a bake sale to benefit the society on Oct. 19 at the Cherry Lane Shopping Cenre. The bake sale will run form 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the organizers will be seeking donated baked goods from residents and local bakeries. Residents planning to donate a baked item are asked to bring it to the sale in the morning and mark if there are any possible allergens residents should be aware of or if it’s done for a specific diet such as vegan or gluten-free.
