Participants prepare for Adelaide Memory Walk & Jog
The 2019 Adelaide Memory Walk & Jog is only a hop, skip and jump away, with the event taking place in just two weeks’ time, on Sunday 17 March 2019, at the Colley Reserve, Colley Terrace, Glenelg.
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 3km, 6km 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 Adelaide.
There will be prizes for the top fundraisers, as well as raffles, plenty of entertainment for the whole family, food stalls, a jumping castle and a special guest appearance from Memory Walk & Jog mascot, Al the Elephant.
After a successful inaugural year in 2018, the popular Memory Lounge will be making a return to the Adelaide Memory Walk & Jog this year. The Memory Lounge is proudly sponsored by Lumin, and we will be inviting attendees to come inside and share the stories behind their reasons for supporting Dementia Australia on camera. These experiences will be used to create short videos and help promote the Memory Walk & Jog series of events.
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.
