About the Walk

Walk audience

The Manulife Walk for Memories is a fun, family-friendly event where the community comes together to raise money for the Alzheimer Society of Toronto while honouring and remembering those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

 

Join us for a fun and easy indoor walk

The Manulife Walk for Memories begins at the Allen Lambert Galleria in Brookfield Place, loops through Toronto’s underground PATH and then ends right back at Brookfield Place.  Stay warm, stay dry and stay entertained by the various performers set up throughout the course of the walk!
