Are you ready to get active and beat dementia?

Memory Walk & Jog is a great way to have fun, get fit and raise vital funds for Dementia Australia. And did you know, not only does your body get that feel-good vibe from exercise – your brain will be full of beans too!

Before you start your new exercise regime, please make sure you consult with a doctor and/or fitness instructor. They can advise you how to exercise safely and effectively.

Please ensure you are following the current government guidelines when excersizing. No more than two people (unless in an immediate household), keeping a 1.5m distance between each other. Please keep hand sanitisers with you, wear comfortable shoes, keep hydrated and if you need to sneeze or cough please remember to use your elbow and cover your mouth.

Know your body

Pay attention to how your body responds to exercise and see a doctor if you experience any pain.

Eat well

Keep a balanced, nutritious diet to fuel your training, help build muscle and support a healthy brain.

Stay hydrated 24/7

Keep your water bottle handy - even when you’re not training - and drink regularly through the day.

Gradual fitness

Build your training up gradually to avoid injury, burnout or boredom!

Running shoes

Professionally fitted footwear can improve your posture, how you move and the impact on your body.

Good posture

Correct posture helps you to work on your target muscles effectively, and protects them from injury.

Feel free to get in touch with us for more support with your training. We’re with you every step of the way!

And remember, your kilometres make the world of difference to those living with dementia, their families and carers.
