Walk your dog to help beat dementia

Memory Walk 2019 - alzheimer memory walk

 

From this July, you can head out for a walk with your best four-legged friend on an Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Walk.

 

The charity is encouraging keen dog walkers to arrange a Memory Walk to help raise money so that the charity can support those affected by dementia. Donations will go towards increasing telephone support via Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Connect support line, which has been a lifeline for thousands of people during the coronavirus pandemic.

 

People affected by dementia and their carers have been left severely impacted by coronavirus. Thousands of people been cut off from support networks and our services, which heavily rely on donations, have never been in more urgent need.

 

Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Walks, are a great way to walk for a loved one, and to help raise awareness about the challenges faced by those who suffer from dementia and their carers.

 

It’s completely free to register and it’s up to you where you walk, whether you decide to lap your garden or head out on a beautiful coastal walk.

 

Memory Walks can take place at any time from July to October, although there is a special World Alzheimer’s Day Memory Walk taking place on the 20 September.
