Join a Memory Walk

September is World Alzheimers Month!

Join one of our Memory Walks taking place all around NZ this September to raise awareness for people affected by dementia.

Memories are precious. That’s why this September, thousands of Kiwis will be walking to show their support for all those living with dementia. Let’s walk to remember. Let’s walk for dementia.

Come along and walk to show your support for people with dementia and their families, friends and care partners. Memory Walks are a great activity for people of all ages and abilities.

When: Between Saturday 15 and Saturday 29 September
Where: Nationwide - find your local event below
