SEPTEMBER IS WORLD ALZHEIMERS AWARENESS MONTH
An international campaign to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia.
You are invited to join Alzheimers Nelson Memory Walk on Saturday 22 September, 11am at St Barnabas Anglican Church followed by a walk in Isel Park.
Memories are precious. That’s why thousands of Kiwis will be walking to show their support for all those living with dementia this September weekend.
Let’s walk to remember. Let’s walk for dementia and show our support for people with dementia, their families, friends and care partners.
Wear purple so we make a striking spectacle. Refreshments available for purchase after the walk.
Around 70,000 Kiwis are living with dementia today and that’s expected to be over 170,000 by 2050.
