As a family run, outdoor brand, Regatta is delighted to be the Official Sponsor for Alzheimer’s Society’s flagship fundraising event – Memory Walk.
Memory Walk is the 3rd biggest mass participation event in the UK and Regatta are working closely with Alzheimer’s Society to encourage people to sign up and get involved.
Memory Walk is a traditional sponsored walk where people can come together to support everyone affected by dementia and raise vital funds. Everyone is welcome at Memory Walk, all ages and abilities – even four legged friends!
Memory Walks are taking place throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland during September and October. Find your nearest walk at https://www.memorywalk.org.uk/find-a-walk/
Dementia devastates lives. Every 3 minutes, someone in the UK develops dementia. It strips away memories, relationships and our connections to the world. It has become the UK’s biggest killer but we are still unable to prevent, cure or even slow this terrible disease down – we must take action now. Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity and they work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. They provide expert information, training and support services to all who need help and are working towards creating a more dementia-friendly society so more people can live well with dementia for as long as possible.
They can only do this with the help of the amazing and dedicated supporters, volunteers and fundraisers.
Some will walk with people with dementia – exercise such as walking can help people with dementia maintain confidence and improve their thinking skills and sleep. Some will walk in memory of a loved one, or in support of someone living with the condition. Whatever your motivation, please help Alzheimer’s Society take real strides towards in finding a cure.
So get involved! Sign up to a Memory Walk near you today or be a volunteer to be part of an inspiring event. For up to 20% off your registration fee use the code REGATTA19.
