Join the local community walking to raise money for people living with dementia at Alzheimer’s WA inaugural Albany Walk to Remember on Sunday, 22 October at Middleton Beach. Registration is from 7.30am with the walk commencing at 9.00am.
The Albany Walk to Remember is a four or eight kilometre walk to remember those who have walked with us in our lives, those who cannot walk for themselves and those who are sadly no longer with us. The Walk raises money to support and advocate for the 34,000 people living with dementia in Western Australia.
We invite the local community to get behind the cause by registering as a walker or donating at alzheimerswa.org.au.
“The Albany community has long been supporters of Alzheimer’s WA. The community has embraced our Hawthorn House and assist with volunteering and donations. This has provided much needed support to for people with dementia and their families in and around Albany.”
“With continued support we can continue to build our dream for Hawthorn House by providing more support services and improved facilities” says Rhonda Parker, CEO, Alzheimer’s WA.
The walks are suitable for people of all ages and fitness and great for the whole family with entertainment, food and coffee choices on offer.
With the dedication and support of our passionate walkers, Alzheimer’s WA is hoping to raise over $100,000 towards helping support and improve the lived experience of those on the dementia journey including people living with dementia, their carers, families, friends and support networks. Every donation goes a long way and every dollar helps.
