On September 19th, 2015, Capital Paving held its second Miles for Memories 2Km/5Km walk/run event at the Guelph Lake Conservation Area to raise funds and awareness of alzheimers and dementia related diseases.
Capital has a personal connection with alzheimers as its founder, David Stephens, was diagnosed and lived with alzheimers until his passing in 2014. Capital and its employees have been committed for a number of years to this cause and has held annual Coffee Breaks, participated in the Alzheimer Society’s Walk for Memories and has now organized two successful Miles for Memories events, all in an effort to raise funds for alzheimers research.
Over 130 people attended the event and through corporate and personal donations, the Miles for memories raised a minimum of $50,000 which will be donated to the Alzheimer Society of Waterloo Wellington. The funds will assist in the care for diagnosed individuals and to one day find a cure. Over the last several years, Capital helped raise over $125,000 and plans to continue supporting the Alzheimer Society in the future.
Capital Paving sincerely thanks Scotiabank as the events’ platinum sponsor and all other corporate sponsors that helped make Miles for Memories a resounding success.
