Alzheimer’s Society is calling on the public to sign up to their biggest fundraising event of the year, Memory Walk, taking place this autumn.
It’s a day for everyone to come together, celebrate loved ones affected by dementia, and raise money to fund research and services for people living with the condition. Alzheimer’s Society’s cutting-edge health and social research influences practice and transforms lives.
This year, Memory Walk aims to raise £3.2 million and bring together over 45,000 walkers. We need thousands of people to walk with us for a world without dementia - because arm in arm, step by step and pound by pound, we will get there. There are an estimated 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, making it one of the biggest health challenges facing us today.
The walks take place across England, Wales and Northern Ireland throughout September and October and are ideal for people of all ages and abilities, from grandparents to grandchildren. Walkers can choose between a short stroll or a longer walk, up to 10km, with fun activities and entertainment at every location.
