Western Sydney Memory Walk & Jog

"After seeing firsthand just how much dementia has stolen from my nunu, my family and I wanted to raise more awareness for this terrible, debilitating illness. When we heard about Dementia Australia’s Memory Walk & Jog, we knew this would be the perfect opportunity to raise funds for services aimed at other Australians living with dementia, like Frank.

Our family is overwhelmed by the sheer support, loving messages and funds that we have raised thus far on our Memory Walk & Jog journey, after having only set our goal to $500. Amazingly, we have already raised almost triple this amount, in just one week, since going live with this fundraiser on Facebook. We are all extremely thankful for everyone’s unwavering support during this time.

Despite all that dementia has stolen from my nunu, Frank, it will never steal our undying love for an amazing, kind-hearted and selfless grandfather, father and husband."
