The courses and distances vary from location to location, but there will always be a long walk, short walk AND running option available at each location. Check the event pages for all the details of your chosen event including course maps and exact distances. See the full list of events.
As the walking courses are non-competitive, only participants who register for the run will be timed.
Yes, if your race pack hasn't been sent to you in advance you will need photo ID in order to collect your registration pack on race day. Please bring a copy of your driver’s licence, senior’s card or student card.
There is parking at each venue, however, it is limited so we recommend that you carpool or catch public transport where possible.
Yes, but it is also limited. Only vehicles displaying an RMS Disability Sticker will have access to these spaces. Please contact Dementia Australia at firstname.lastname@example.org to pre-register for an accessible parking space so we can make sure your needs are met.
Comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes are strongly recommended. Think about what you might wear at the gym - leave the high heels and ballet flats at home… and of course, fancy dress is always encouraged!
Of course you can. When you select a family ticket, please enter in your chosen distance for each person so we can get the right bib to the right family member.
Safety is our number one priority, but there is a wet weather plan in place so it won’t be cancelled for a little bit of rain. Be sure to check the weather forecast and come prepared for the elements. The race will be cancelled in extreme weather conditions or if it becomes unsafe. We will put notifications on the website, phone-line and Facebook if it is cancelled, and you may get an SMS alerting you about it too if you have given us a mobile contact.
You can change between race types by emailing email@example.com up until online entries close a few days before the race. After this date we cannot accommodate event changes.
Yes! We encourage you to bring along family members of all ages so we ensure the tracks can cater for these.
We are super excited to say that yes furry friends are welcome to walk with you for all Memory Walk & Jog events in 2019! Dogs are not allowed to take part in the runs and dog passes are only available while stocks last.
Just be sure to include your pooch as part of the registration process as we will have a doggy bandana for you to collect on the day. Please also take note of the terms and conditions for having your buddy there so that we know everyone will be safe. You must bring your own bags and clean up after your dog, and please remember to bring some water for your dog.
First aid teams will be located at various points around the course. If you have a need for them please make yourself known to either them or a course marshal.
Of course! There are a number of ways you can help out:
If you don’t like putting your credit card details online, just send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our team members will be sure to get you sorted.
This is a come one come all type of event. However, if you’re under 18 years of age be sure to grab an adult to accompany you.
Once you complete the registration process online you will receive a confirmation email with a receipt for your payment along with your fundraising page details. If you still have questions after reading those, feel free to give us a call for a chat.
Absolutely! But if you want to avoid standing in line AND save a few dollars while you’re at it, we strongly urge you to register ahead of time.
Joining a team is super easy. You can join in different ways depending if you've already registered or have yet to register:
All funds raised help Dementia Australia to provide vital support services; such as counselling, support groups, education to help family carers and professional training. Dementia Australia's services support people living with dementia, their carers and family, so the community will benefit from your donations.
The easiest thing to do is to keep the cash or cheque and make the payment to your online page using your credit card. Remember to make it in the name of the person who donated though so they get the receipt. If you do not want to pay your donations online, please fill out the paper sponsorship form from your pack and follow the steps there to return it to us.
Easy peasy - and so glad you asked! When you log into your Facebook account, you should see a box that asks you “What’s on your mind?”. All you have to do is paste the link/URL that’s been emailed to you for your fundraising page into that box. Then write something before it like: “I’m doing Memory Walk & Jog next month in memory of my father, Henry, who passed away last year from dementia. I would like to raise $500 for Dementia Australia by doing this, please sponsor me by clicking on my page.”
No problem! We have some fundraising tips to get you started, or simply call us to have a brainstorm and a chat!
We’d like you to fundraise but it’s not compulsory. Your registration fee helps us cover the cost of running the event and it’s your fundraising dollars that go towards Dementia Australia’s services in your local community.
If you’d like to give fundraising a go, we have some fundraising tips to help you raise as much as possible. You’d be surprised how keen your family and friends will be to get behind you and support the cause you’re walking for.
If you only want to come along and do the walk, that’s fine and we’d still love you to take part!
The great thing about MY Memory Walk & Jog is that you can do what you like over your preferred time period. You can complete your challenge in one day or run 5kms a day for a whole month. It’s all up to you!
You do not have to raise a certain amount of money; however a fundraising page will be automatically created after you sign up which encourages you to fundraise. People choose to raise anywhere from $200 to $20,000, so you can set your goal to whatever works for you. Every bit helps!
There is a registration fee of $20 to sign up, however we throw in a free 2XU Memory Walk & Jog singlet which is valued at around $50 so you are winning already!
Yes! It’s a great way to fundraise after your challenge as it encourages people to donate knowing you took the time to do this personal challenge. Just keep us in the loop so we know how long to keep your fundraising page live for.
If you're creating a MY Memory Walk & Jog event, you can still create a team of walkers. Just follow these steps:
It is completely free to sign up to host your own DIY Memory Walk & Jog.
If you are using a local space it is best to check with the local council if you require permission to use it. Ask us about our Public Liability Insurance.
You don’t have to raise a certain amount of money to participate or host your own DIY Memory Walk & Jog, however we do ask that you try to make fundraising a part of the event and encourage those who are participating with you to fundraise too. Groups choose to raise anywhere from $200 to $20,000, so you can set your goal to whatever works for you and your event. We have heaps of great tips in your pack and will make this as easy as possible for you.
This is completely up to you. Some choose to ticket their event which helps raise money on the day. You can ticket your event through your event microsite and also sell on-the-day entry in person if you like. Others choose to not charge for the event, preferring various other activities on the day such as a sausage sizzle, raffles or other fun activities which help raise money. This is totally up to you.
We can provide you with the following to help make the day successful:
