Join us for the annual Memory Walk 2017, a free, fun family event to raise awareness about Alzheimer's and dementia in our Northland communities. The walk starts from the canopy walkway and is an easy, social 4.5 km walk around the Hatea loop. The walk suits all ages and abilities.

The focus is to raise awareness and understanding about what happens to people and their families when dementia strikes. It's also about what we as individuals can do to help, and what services Alzheimer's Northland currently offers.

If you're not in Whangarei, check out the other venues in Northland:
- Kaitaia - Starting at Community House, 12 nn, 23 September
- Kerikeri - Starting at Kerikeri Domain, 12 nn, 23 September
- Dargaville - Starting at Countdown carpark, 10:30 am., 23 September

This year people will be able to register for Memory Walks online – and fundraise! We’ve teamed up with ‘GoFundraise’ who have hosted online fundraising sites for Memory Walks in Australia. By registering online, people will get the option to donate or create a fundraising page.

This is similar to ‘Give a Little’ where an individual (or team) can gather donations for their participation in the Memory Walk from friends, family or colleagues. These donations will be included in the National Donor Programme. Check out the website and encourage your community to register.

So take the time to go online now. And on the walk, go as far as you like around the loop, then stop for a coffee on the waterfront!
