SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION

The 3rd annual Bloomington Cove Walk/Run for Memories is a charitable event, where all proceeds go directly to the Alzheimer’s Society of York Region.  Alzheimer’s is a terminal disease of the brain. It erases memory, steals the ability to think, and makes simple daily tasks, such as eating and getting dresses, impossible. It robs independence and eventually takes life. Bloomington Cove holds this annual event as a launch to the Ontario Long Term Care Week in October, challenging all homes in the province to do the same; raising awareness and funds.

If you are considering sponsorship, the benefits of supporting the Bloomington Cove Walk/Run for Memories are well worth it!!! Please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.
