Alzheimer’s Society Sefton is encouraging local residents to take part in a Memory Walk next month.
Linda Lawson, Information Officer with Alzheimer’s Society Sefton, says: “Dementia doesn’t care who you are; it could affect us all. It’s time to come together to walk towards a cure and improve care. We’d love you to unite against dementia with us by taking part in Memory Walk and raise vital funds for people affected by dementia. Get your friends and family to sign up too and walk together as a team.”
More than 5,000 people are expected to take part in Liverpool Memory Walk at Croxteth Park on Sunday, 9 September where they can choose from a 2km accessible route or a longer 10km route, raising sponsorship before the walk itself! If you’re interested, sign up here. There is also the Liverpool night walk at Aintree Race Course on Saturday, 29 September – sign up here.
Don’t fancy walking? Why not donate your time and help on the day as a volunteer? Organisers need help with marshalling, handing out medals or helping cheer people along! Register to volunteer here
Alzheimer’s Society add: “If you want to gather colleagues, friends or family together and enjoy a day out why not organise your own Memory Walk, your way? Register for an organisers fundraising pack and pick a date that suits you in order to get the ball rolling. If you have any questions about organising your own, from a walking lunch or a challenging hill trek, then don’t hesitate to get in touch! Please visit the website www.memorywalk.org.uk for our FAQs, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 0300 330 5452.”
