Here at Alzheimer’s WA, we appreciate the generosity, hard work and determination of our volunteer fundraisers! Fundraising for dementia and Alzheimer’s WA can be a fun, challenging and rewarding experience. Best of all; you will be helping people living with dementia, their families and carers. The funds you raise will be used to develop a better quality of life for over 39,600 Western Australians living with dementia.
This means providing training and education, researching the latest innovations and care-approaches to assist people living with dementia, increasing understanding and awareness amongst families and the community and, of course, working towards a future without dementia.
Every dollar you raise will have a powerful impact and enhance the quality of life of all West Australians living with dementia, their families and carers.
Your fundraising efforts will help us achieve a better future.
For many years, Marie thought about walking the Kokoda Track, as her dad served in the Kokoda track campaign between the years of 1942 and 1944. After Marie’s mother sadly passed away from dementia, Marie’s committed herself to completing the challenge in honour of her loving parents. Marie raised a remarkable $4,335 for those living with dementia.
Kelly has been fundraising for Alzheimer’s WA since 2005. Each year, Kelly promotes and sells Entertainment Books and then donates 20% of the sale price to Alzheimer’s WA. A lot of hard work and commitment goes into this fundraising project but each year Kelly continues to support those living with dementia, their families and carers.
Maryanne decided to combine her passion for horse riding and a desire to raise money to support those living with dementia, to create the annual Wine and Horses Charity Ride. The first charity ride took place in 2014. Participants chose between a 50km or 100km ride, with an overnight camp at Avon Valley Equestrian Centre in Northam. A percentage of all registration fees were donated to Alzheimer’s WA. In 2017 Maryanne and the Wine and Horses team raised over $37,000, bringing the total they have raised over the last four years to more than $112,000.
