The Schumacher Lions Club Took Part In IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s

For volunteers with the Schumacher Lions Club, supporting a great community cause is a walk in the park.

The Club was a gold level sponsor for the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s on Saturday, May 25 at Hollinger Park in Timmins. The Club donated $1,000 to obtain the gold sponsorship level.

Volunteers set up a tent in the park on the rainy morning, which was perfect for serving up Tim Hortons coffee, tea, Timbits and muffins to participants and spectators. Lions Club members also took part in the walk, including several with individual sponsor sheets to further help the cause.

The idea for sponsorship was first raised by new Lion Brian Green, who works for IG Wealth Management. Like many other fellow Lions, the cause hits close to home. Many members have family or friends who have struggled with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

All funds raised at the event are used by the Timmins-Porcupine District Alzheimer’s Society for local programs and support services.
