Ipswich DIY Memory Walk & Jog

“In our community here in Ipswich we have a dementia based unit at the Ipswich Hospital where we have an influx of patients with dementia. We have amazing allied health, nursing, geriatrician and administration staff that make it a safe, caring and happy environment. 

My reasons behind doing this DIY event is for the families of Ipswich, they deserve to have a day to remember and appreciate the lives of their loved ones. Our first year was a great success having families and staff members jog and walk for a great cause and all wearing yellow for a great morning out. I am hoping it will be bigger and better next year and this will be an annual event for the city.”
