Soccer Clinic for Alzheimers

ABOUT SOCCER CLINIC FOR ALZHEIMERS 2019
We are four friends who love soccer and decided we would like to use our skills and experience to help make a difference in the lives of families dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Last year's inaugural event was such a huge success that we decided to do it again.
Join us for a fun skills & development soccer clinic for kids aged 5-10 on Wednesday, August 7th from 12:00 (noon) – 3:00 pm at the City Two field on City Lane in Beaconsfield.
The registration cost is $20 and all proceeds will be donated through “A Night To Remember” directly to the Alzheimer Society of Montreal.
ABOUT THE ALZHEIMER SOCIETY OF MONTREAL
The Alzheimer Society of Montreal is the reference point in Montreal to learn about, understand, and live with Alzheimer's disease.
More than 33,000 Montrealers live with Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia. The number of people living with dementia in Canada is set to increase by 66% within the next 15 years and, as a result, the demand for our support, counselling, respite, and educational services is on the rise. Raising awareness about the importance of fundraising is crucial if we are to be ready for the tsunami that awaits us.
Thanks for your support.
This campaign has ended.
