ALZHEIMER’S FUNDRAISING: Hundreds set to come together for Watford charity walk

 Published on: 1st September 2023   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Hundreds of walkers will come together in Watford this weekend to bring hope to people living with dementia by raising vital funds for Alzheimer’s Society.

Participants will be stepping out to honour or remember a loved one with dementia at the charity’s Memory Walk, which takes place at Cassiobury Park, Watford, from 10am on Saturday, September 2.

Money raised from the event will help fund faster diagnosis and ongoing support for people affected by dementia, as well as funding vital research.

Judith King, local services manager for the Alzheimer’s Society in Hertfordshire, said: “There are more than 15,900 people living with dementia in Hertfordshire, so there has never been a better time to gather your support network and take part in the Watford Memory Walk.

“The buzz of the crowd, quiet moments of remembrance, the hug of a stranger who gets it – whatever you feel on the day, you won’t be alone.

“And every pound raised by incredible supporters will help improve the lives of everyone living with dementia both now and in the future.

“So, whether you walk as one or walk with many at Watford Memory Walk, it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate and remember all those affected by dementia and help fund vital support and research.”

Hundreds of supporters have already registered to take part in the Memory Walk, which is suitable for all ages and abilities and is free to sign up.

Participants can also opt to organise a walk of their own at a time and location of their choice during autumn 2023 and will receive a fundraising pack and T-shirt.
