People across the generations are being called on to unite against dementia by signing up for Alzheimer’s Society’s very first Memory Walk in Ipswich on Sunday 2nd September 2018.
Debbie Foster, Alzheimer’s Society operations manager for Norfolk and Suffolk, said, “Dementia is now the UK’s biggest killer, with someone developing it every three minutes.
“We’re calling on people with dementia, family, friends and teams from across Suffolk to unite against dementia this autumn. Walk with us at Ipswich Memory Walk to help defeat dementia.
“Dementia devastates lives, but every pound raised through memory Walk will help us provide vital information and support, improve care, fund research and create lasting for people affected by the condition.
“We are urging people to unite against dementia and register now at memorywalk.org.uk”
Alzheimer’s Society is pledged to invest £150 million in the next decade in the search for better treatments and work towards a cure.
More than 12,000 people in Suffolk are living with dementia and over 350 people have already registered to take part. The event is aiming to raise more than £106,000 to fund research and provide support for people living with dementia.
