Earn your turkey this Thanksgiving & create local impact

Surround yourself with a light-hearted atmosphere and kick-off your Thanksgiving with the warmth of the community beside you.

We hope you’ll join us at the 25th Annual Alzheimer Walk & Run on Thanksgiving Sunday. All ages are welcome- and you’ll be home in time for turkey.

This year's event puts you right in the heart of Prince's Island Park and Eau Claire Market. Be lifted by the energy of the crowd. Grab a bite. And start your day on a high.

Sunday, October 11th
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
@Eau Claire Market

Because Alzheimer’s is a part of your story. And Calgary’s. Are you in?

You’ll really earn your turkey dinner!
And the best news… you’ll still have plenty of time to spend with family and friends.

Just think...
97% less guilt when indulging at Thanksgiving dinner.
100% local impact.

From your friends,
