Aldergrove resident to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in support of the Alzheimer’s Society

An Aldergrove woman is reaching new heights in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.

Janet Ingram-Johnson, is preparing to climb Mt Kilimanjaro this fall in support of the Alzheimer Society.

Before she goes, however, Ingram-Johnson must raise $10,000 for the society in addition to paying her own way from Aldergrove to the African peak and back.

On Sunday, Aug. 11, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Ingram-Johnson’s friends will help her by hosting a fundraising event: Aldergrove to Kilimanjaro: A Journey to Help Victims of Dementia.

Cost to attend is $20 per person, plus there will be an opportunity to bid on items in the silent auction. No children under 12, please.

For $20 guests will be treated to a light buffet dinner, beverages under the vines, live music from “Braces and Cuffs”, croquet, walks around the pond and garden, with a panoramic view of Mt Baker — most apropos.

It all takes place in West Aldergrove.

RSVP to Langley artist Robin Bandenieks, at or call 604-856-1984, for the location of the event.
