Coffee Break for Alzheimer research

Although World Alzheimer’s Month has just passed, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. is still encouraging Tri-Cities residents to be a host in October for a Coffee Break event to raise funds for the organization.

The events can be as simple as offering a cup of coffee, tea or other treat in exchange for a donation. The society provides a complimentary kit with everything needed to get started, including the coffee.

“The fundraiser is truly a wonderful yet easy way for residents of the Tri Cities to raise awareness about dementia, reduce stigma and make a difference in their community,” said Cathryn France, the society’s director of resource development, in a news release.

In addition to being a Coffee Break host, businesses can request a Forget Me Not flower kit with cardboard cut-outs from the society to raise funds and awareness.

The funds will support local programs and services for those affected by dementia, as well as research into its causes and cures.

To learn more or to register to host a Coffee Break, visit coffeebreakbc.ca or contact Glen Mountfield at gmountfield@alzheimerbc.org, or 604-742-4948.
