Darwin Memory Walk & Jog postponed
We were so excited to be holding our inaugural Memory Walk & Jog in Darwin. However, in the interests of public safety and due to the evolving situation regarding COVID-19, Dementia Australia has postponed this event.
The event was planned for this Sunday 4 July at Dudley Point Lookout. It has now been rescheduled to Sunday 22 August.
The team is constantly monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19, and remains in communication with the relevant federal, state and local authorities. The wellbeing of our participants, clients, supporters, staff and community is our number one priority.
We have notified everybody who has already registered for this event about the postponement, and we thank everyone who has supported us thus far. We know how passionate the people of Darwin are as a community, we thank you for your ongoing support, and hope to see as many of you as possible on the new event date.
There are an estimated 1,900 people living with dementia in the Northern Territory. With that figure projected to increase to about 6,500 by 2058, events like Memory Walk & Jog play an important role not only in funding support, but also in raising awareness of dementia.
