Alzheimer’s Memory Walk
During World Alzheimer’s month on Sunday September 20th we are asking you to join us for our first virtual Alzheimer’s Memory Walk event.
This September was due to be our first Alzheimer’s Memory Walk with events taking place across Ireland. But, in line with government restrictions and Covid19 precautions, we’ve launched our 2020 campaign as virtual walk event!
Going virtual will provide a wonderful for opportunity for everyone to ‘Walk Together’, while staying apart, to help raise much needed funds for people living with dementia in their communities all across Ireland.
There are over 500,000 families affected by dementia in Ireland and we wanted to hold an event that was accessible to everyone, from granny and grandchildren to our four legged friends.
We hope You will join us on this All-inclusive Family event!
Get involved in this feel-good and uplifting occasion to mark World Alzheimer’s Month and plan your very own (socially-distanced) Memory walk, solo, with your family or within your community. So, whether that is 5km, 10km or whatever distance you choose – On Sunday September 20th It’s Your Walk, Your Way.
Walk in memory of a loved one or for someone living with dementia. This year more than ever we need your support to continue to provide vital dementia services running in communities all around the country.
Getting Involved is Easy!
- Sign-up HERE to get your Special Walk T-Shirt and your Walk Pack.
- Walk with us on Sunday, September 20th!
- Share why you are taking part in Alzheimer’s Memory Walk and encourage your family and friends to sign-up and walk too.
Share Your Walks!
While we will be making every step count from a safe distance this year, we cannot wait to see you all in your t-shirts ‘Walking Together’ for dementia.
Make sure to share your photos with us on the day using #ASIMemoryWalk and #DoItForDementia on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
ASI ambassador, beauty expert and entrepreneur Pamela Laird supporting Alzheimer's Memory Walk.
We are delighted to be joined by ASI ambassador, beauty expert and entrepreneur Pamela Laird who has a family connection with dementia as her father, Sylvester, was diagnosed with dementia in 2016. Pamela says:
Alzheimer’s Memory Walk is an excellent way to bring families and communities together to raise vital money and awareness during World Alzheimer’s Month. The Alzheimer Society of Ireland does excellent work throughout the country and my family has used their supports to help my dad with his journey with dementia.
During World Alzheimer’s Month 2020, I really want to put a spotlight on dementia as it desperately needs our attention. I’m really looking forward to taking part in Alzheimer’s Memory Walk and I would encourage everyone to do the same.
