Walk For Alzheimer’s
Team Bob White was on the march again this weekend at the Walk for Alzheimer’s held at Brock University. Members from Local 707 (Maiken Griffen, Shauna Thorne-Zarin and Arnie De Vaan) joined some members of the National Organizing team and from Local 199. Unifor Local 199 had started Team Bob White to honour the CAW past President who passed away back in 2017. The indoor walk is organized by the Niagara chapter of the Alzheimer’s society to raise awareness about dementia and much needed funds to help families impacted by the disease. Team Bob White worked hard over the past few months getting donations totaling over $14,000! The total funds raised in Niagara were over $120,000! This was a well-run event and great work was done by the Team Bob White organizers from Local 199.
