Walk for Dementia annual fundraising organizers are looking out for a thief who took an inflatable husband who was leaving their departure early on Saturday morning.

According to the organizers of the event, the big red inflatable man was set up beside the Tonal Grassland on Scott Street in the center of Ottawa on Saturday as an attempt to mark the entrance to the site where participants could park their vehicles.

The incredible stitching man was in effect around 8 a.m., according to some people he used as a presenter about the place to park. However, by 8:10 he and the generator who was using it to keep him inflated had disappeared.

The inflatable man was hired by Walk for Dementia organizers from Ottawa Special Events, a company that specializes in leverage for event organizers. The people behind the Walk for Dementia are hoping that the inflatable and the generator come up soon. If they are not, organizers are afraid that they may have to pay for the replacement.

Over 550 people took part in a charity fundraising competition on Saturday, rising between $ 200,000 and $ 300,000 to support carers and people diagnosed with dementia in Ottawa and Renfrew County.
