Run for Alzheimers Auckland
- By Dementia Auckland
Last year a bunch of amazing people ran on behalf of Alzheimers Auckland at the Auckland Marathon. Between them, they managed to raise over $17,000. Well, $17,473.64 to be exact. We know because we carefully counted every dollar and then put it into services to help people with dementia live well, as well as carer programmes for their families.
It doesn’t matter if you’re as slow as a tortoise or as fast as a hare, we’d love to have you on our Alzheimers Auckland team this year (we're so excited we're even rhyming)! Entries for the Auckland Marathon open on the 30th of March, although you’ll have until November to train (so there’s plenty of time to get fit). The Auckland Marathon itself will be held on Sunday 1st November. You can sign up here.
Make sure you don’t miss out this year, especially if you’re planning on doing the half-marathon – these entries sold out in two weeks last year. Some of the staff at Alzheimers Auckland will be running the half marathon too, so we look forward to seeing you there!
