Memory Walk 2017
If you follow V Family Fun on Twitter you may have seen this:
Myself, N and also my sister-in-law Claire are taking part in a local Memory Walk in September 2017. There is a choice of walking distance (either 2km or 6km) and all being well we'd like to do the 6km so that our sponsors will be getting more steps for their money.
We have snazzy blue t-shirts and there has even been talk of blue tutus if we manage to raise our target amount!
Memory Walk is a sponsored walk for all ages and abilities to unite together to raise money to fund vital research and defeat dementia. Organised by the Alzheimer's Society, the walks are spread across England, Wales and Northern Ireland and each walk will take on a different route through either a city, woodlands or a park. This year over 110,000 people walk united, against dementia.
Did you know around 225,000 people develop dementia every year – that's the equivalent to one person every three minutes. Myself and N are walking in memory of Great-Nan Trixie and Granny Cuckoo - always in our hearts 💕.
We're fundraising on JustGiving and we'd love your support so, if you've been touched by this devastating illness or just want to do your bit to help, please click the link and donate. Every penny really does help - we desperately want a world without dementia.
As I write this blog post we're already over halfway to our target thanks to the amazing generosity of eight lovely supporters but obviously it would be even more amazing if we could raise the whole £300!
During the walk itself I'm planning to take lots of photos along the way to share on our JustGiving page and possibly social media if I'm not too out of breath 😁.
Thank you to those who have already donated and thank you in advance to those who do, we very much appreciate your support!
