Step up and walk for dementia!
- By Dementia Auckland
Join our 5km fundraising Memory Walk for a fantastic day out with the whole family – this year we hope to create more awareness, raise more money, and have more fun!
When: 20th September, 9am
Where: Selwyn Reserve, Mission Bay
What: An easy 5km walk to raise awareness for those affected by dementia!
There are currently 15,000 people with dementia in the greater Auckland region, a number that research shows is expected to double over the next 15 to 20 years. For every person with the condition there is a wider network of family and friends who are affected. We know that many of you have had a loved one with dementia, which is why we’d love you to join us for the 2015 Memory Walk in honour of them.
The Memory Walk will grow awareness of dementia and give those affected by dementia, carers, families, and those with the condition a chance to stand up and be counted.
So get walking for dementia – who will you walk for?
