People affected by dementia have been left severely impacted by coronavirus – but you can help.
As well as people with dementia being the worst hit in terms of deaths, Alzheimers Society is hearing daily from people who are seeing their symptoms increase, mental health decline, and family carers in despair.
The charity is encouraging everyone to undertake a fundraising Memory Walk in March. You may be one of the thousands of people across the UK who has been personally affected by dementia. You may be wanting to walk as a way of remembering a loved one – or you may just want a fun-filled activity to raise money for charity.
You can complete your own Memory Walk, however and wherever you choose, in line with Government guidance.

As well as signing up to a Trek26 event, Alzheimer’s Society is encouraging everyone to do their own Memory Walk in March, the perfect chance to tie to those laces tight in preparation for your trek.
It’s never been more important to raise money to help us reach and support more people through our vital services, like our Dementia Connect support line.
Alzheimer’s Society services have been used almost 3 million times since March 2020. You can help us make even more of a difference by walking against dementia.
