Participants prepare for Melbourne Memory Walk & Jog
The 2019 Melbourne Memory Walk & Jog is only a hop, skip and jump away, with the event taking place in just four weeks’ time, on Sunday 5 May at Westerfolds Park, Fitzsimons Lane, Templestowe.
Memory Walk & Jog raises much-needed funds to support the work of Dementia Australia, which provides invaluable support, education and resources for people living with dementia in Australia, their carers, families and friends.
This year, participants can choose to take part in a 5km or 10km walk, jog or run and are invited to help us reach the $1.5 million national fundraising target. All funds raised will benefit Dementia Australia services in Victoria.
There will be prizes for the top fundraisers, as well as raffles, plenty of entertainment for the whole family, food stalls, and a special guest appearance from Memory Walk & Jog mascot, Al the Elephant.
Registrations are now open for all Memory Walk & Jog events across Australia. Register today for Dementia Australia’s biggest fundraiser of the year at www.memorywalk.com.au.
