Alzheimer’s Society’s Cardiff Memory Walk 10th October 2021
Cardiff residents are being invited to don their walking gear, lace up their boots, and unite against dementia by signing up to Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Walk this Autumn.
Hundreds of Alzheimer’s Society supporters will put their best foot forward at Bute Park on 10th October 2021 alongside family, friends and colleagues to raise money for the charity.
Over a year since the pandemic began, people with dementia are still bearing the brunt of coronavirus and demand for Alzheimer’s Society’s services is still increasing. Memory Walk will bring together people who have been personally affected by dementia, those who want to walk to remember a loved one, and people looking for a fun-filled activity to raise money for charity at 20 locations across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Supporters can also opt to walk on their own, or with loved ones, on the paths, pavements, parks or pebbles in a location of their choosing throughout September.
By marching out in support of Alzheimer’s Society, walkers will raise crucial funds to help the charity reach more people through its vital services, like the Dementia Connect support line, which has been used more than five million times since March 2020.
The event offers the opportunity for local residents to walk in support of the 850,000 people currently living with dementia in the UK.
