Memory Walk to raise awareness

Image
This has been a beautiful weekend in Southsea. On Saturday I joined the gentle 3K Memory Walk organised by the Alzheimer Society. A couple of hundreds of people walked together to raise awareness of Dementia. Some came with a group of friends, some with their family and then there were people like me, who were there singly, but each has a story to tell of life touched by Dementia.

We started the morning with some warm up Zumba and the Hokey Kokey!


Many generations took part, celebrating the life of various members of family touched by Dementia.


It was a quite contemplative morning and a humbling experience to learn how many people are affected by this condition and how much is still needed to be done to raise awareness.
