Claire and Sam

We're doing the Melbourne Memory Walk & Jog to raise funds for people with dementia!

We need your support! On Sunday 2 May, we’ll be joining the Melbourne Memory Walk & Jog.

With your help, our aim is to raise money to help Dementia Australia! We’d love you to sign up and join us for the big day. If you can’t make it, please give generously for a vital cause.  

Dementia Australia will use the money raised to provide vital support services for people living with dementia, their families and carers. This much-needed help includes counselling, support groups, education and training for professionals in our local area.

Thank you to our Sponsors
