Members of Soroptimist International of Dundas~Ancaster~Flamborough (SIDAF) participated in the annual “Walk For Memories” , a fundraiser by the Alzheimer Society of Hamilton & Halton, on Sunday January 29th. SIDAF enters a team every year, helping to raise both awareness and funds for the programs and services of the Alzheimer Society.
SIDAF, a women’s volunteer organization that raises money to support programs for women and girls in our local communities, knows that Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias cross all genders, cultures and economic groups, but that women are more often diagnosed, and most often face the challenges of caregiving. SIDAF is proud to support the Alzheimer Society and to “Walk for Memories”, and this year raised $1150 to help out this wonderful organization.
