Still time to register for fourth annual memory walk

2019 Grant McBride Memory Walk and Jog

The countdown is on for the 2021 Grant McBride Virtual Memory Walk and Jog with just three more sleeps to go.

This year’s event will be held on September 25 during Dementia Action Week and will be virtual again due to COVID.

Plenty of Coasties have already signed up to take part.

Federal Member for Dobell, Emma McBride said it was heartening to see so many people getting behind the cause.

“I’m so grateful to everyone who has already signed up to the event.

“This is something that is really close to my heart.

“I lost my Dad, Grant and my grandma Mollie to dementia, so this Saturday, I’ll be walking for them,” McBride said.

She is encouraging more people to sign up and join the race against dementia.

“All you have to do is register online and get active this Saturday in any way you choose, as long as you’re following COVID restrictions.

“You can walk around your local neighbourhood, do a virtual workout at home or keep active by gardening.

“Every bit counts,” McBride said.

There are close to half a million Australians living with dementia, and around 1.6 million people involved in their care.

This event is about raising funds and awareness for Dementia Australia, to help create a better future for all of us.
