Raised so far
The Grant McBride Memory Walk & Jog is back!
But this time we are going virtual
During Dementia Awareness Week, 21-27 September, I am asking you to join me in supporting people living with dementia, their family and carers.
I lost my Dad, Grant, to Younger Onset Dementia when he was just 68 years old. In my early twenties I lost my grandma to dementia. I made a promise to my Mum that I would do everything I could to help people living with dementia and those who care for them.
How to go virtual
You can walk, jog, ride a bike, do any exercise wherever you possibly can throughout this week but please make sure you are following all of the government guidelines.
Here are some ideas you could do to keep active:
- Walk around your local neighbourhood
- Do a virtual workout at home
- Keep active by cleaning the house or gardening.
All you have to do is sign up!
Across Australia there are more than 459,000 people living with dementia and nearly 1.6 million involved in their care.
Help us to raise awareness, reduce stigma and raise vital funds to fight dementia.
