Participants prepare for Sunshine Coast Memory Walk & Jog
The 2019 Sunshine Coast Memory Walk & Jog is only a hop, skip and jump away, with the event taking place in just four weeks’ time, on Sunday 9 June at Kawana Surf Club.
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 ina 2.5km, 5km or 9km and 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 the Sunshine Coast.
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.
