A Walk for the Ages 2021 Review

About the Event

A Walk for the Ages in Support of Baycrest is a new fundraising event created by the Baycrest Foundation. Its aim is to raise awareness and funds in support of our quest to defeat dementia. Since our inception more than 100 years ago, Baycrest has challenged the traditional methods of delivering care and remains dedicated to our society’s most vulnerable populations.

Whatever your age, A Walk for the Ages is where families, friends and companies can come together to raise money to create a future where every older adult enjoys a life of purpose, inspiration, and fulfilment.

About Baycrest

Baycrest was founded in 1918 by visionary community members. Through innovative thinking, we are now among the few academic health science organizations in the world dedicated to research, innovation, education and care of older adults.

More than 564,000 Canadians live with dementia, with 25,000 new cases diagnosed every year. By 2021, the number of seniors is projected to exceed the number of children aged 14 and younger for the first time ever

  • In 2018, approximately one in four Canadians aged 15 and older (or 7.8 million people) provided care to a family member or friend with a long-term health condition, a physical or mental disability, or problems related to aging
  • 1.1 million Canadians are affected directly or indirectly by dementia
  • $10.4 billion = the annual cost to Canadians of caring for people with dementia; this expense is projected to double by 2031.
