FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Communities across northern British Columbia are coming together virtually for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s Breakfast to Remember fundraiser.

A morning of inspiring guest speakers will gather online over breakfast on March 4th, from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Global National anchor Dawna Friesen will emcee the event. Another notable name on the docket is astronaut Chris Hadfield, the first Canadian to walk in space.

In previous years, Breakfast to Remember events have been held in Vancouver, Kelowna, and Victoria, bringing together business leaders and communities across the province. With the help of guest speakers, the events raise critical funds for Alzheimer Society of B.C. programs, services, and increase dementia research in the province.

The B.C. Notaries Association is a sponsor of the event. Partnering with the Alzheimer Society of B.C. allows the association to educate members about dementia and give back to clientele who will need access to dementia support.

“Not only are we keen to support the Alzheimer Society of B.C., but notaries can learn to help identify the signs of dementia in their clients and be a part of a resource network that ensures dignity and respect for the person living with dementia,” says R. Chad Rintoul, Chief Executive Officer of the BC Notaries Association. “Notaries are in communities throughout B.C. and have the opportunity in their practice every day to reach a variety of clients, so this partnership is very poignant.”
