Alzheimer’s Memory Walk - Let’s walk together and make every step count
Sixty-four thousand people are living with dementia and over 500,000 families are affected in Ireland and we want to support our charity of choice for 2020, the Alzheimer’s Society in their latest fundraising effort, the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk.
September 2020 was due to be their first actual Alzheimer‘s Memory Walk event with a number of ASI organised walks across Ireland, but in line with government restrictions on large gatherings and Covid-19 precautions, they decided to launch Alzheimer’s Memory Walk 2020 as a virtual event on September 20th.
This event is suitable for everyone from babies in buggies, to grannies and grandads and your four-legged friends so we’re encouraging all our members and colleagues to get a small group together and get walking and we’ll be doing our own walk here in the Castle grounds on 20th with staff members.
So, sign up today – you can walk anywhere, with anyone for as long as you like. Track each step you take to support those living with dementia by using your favourite fitness app, Strava, Map My Walk or step tracker on your phone or watch.
If you think your family and friends would like to give you further donations for completing your Alzheimer’s Memory Walk then you can set up an online fundraising page - one of the most popular online fundraising platforms is www.idonate.ie
Have fun everyone and don’t forget to tag ASI on your IG stories.
