Mandurah community joins inaugural Walk to Remember to raise money for people living with dementia


Date: 3 October 2017

Join the local community walking to raise money for people living with dementia at Alzheimer’s WA inaugural Mandurah Walk to Remember on Sunday, 15 October at Town Beach (next to Seashells Resort). Registration is from 7.30am with the walk commencing at 9.00am.

The Mandurah Walk to Remember is a four 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 Mandurah community has long been supporters of Alzheimer’s WA. Due to their support we were able to turn our dream into reality and open our respite day centre, Ella’s House, a few years ago providing support for people with dementia and their families in and around Mandurah.”

“With continued support we can continue to build our dream for Ella’s house by providing more support services and improved facilities” says Rhonda Parker, CEO, Alzheimer’s WA.

The Mandurah Walk to Remember is the first in the series, with similar events, happening in Albany on Sunday, 22 October and Perth at Perry Lakes Reserve on Sunday, 5 November 2017.

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.

For more information about Alzheimer’s WA and the services available please visit alzheimerswa.org.au or call 1300 66 77 88.
