Every 4 seconds, someone around the globe is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. By the year 2038, approximately 1,125,200 Canadians will have dementia; 2.8% of the Canadian population. The cumulative economic burden of this rise in dementia will be $872 billion dollars*.
Join us for the 5th Annual Memory Ball on April 2, 2016 as we work to change the course of Alzheimer’s disease and spread awareness among young people.
All proceeds from the event are donated to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto in support of their mission – to ensure that no one in Toronto will ever feel alone when facing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
