Spotlight on some of our passionate community fundraisers
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.
