Alzheimer’s Society invites fundraisers to get their GLOW on to unite against dementia and take part in one of our night-time Memory Walks taking place across the UK in March 2020 dressed in their glow-in-the-dark best.
Whether it is to fulfil a New Year’s resolution to get more exercise, remember a loved one, or simply to spend time with family and friends for a good cause, the walks range in length from 4.5km to 6km to cater for all ages and abilities.
Dementia is now the UK’s biggest killer with someone developing it every three minutes, yet dementia research still trails far behind other health conditions after decades of underfunding. Taking part in a GLOW walk will help Alzheimer’s Society improve care, fund research and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.
GLOW is taking place on:
- Saturday, March 6, 7.30pm – Belfast, Bristol
- Sunday, March 7, 7.30pm – Brighton, Hull and Southend
- Saturday, March 13, 7.30pm – London, Battersea Park
- Sunday, March 14, 7.30pm – Liverpool, Manchester and Tyneside
Alzheimer’s Society is committed to spending at least £150 million over the next decade on dementia research to improve care and quality of life for people today while powering on the hunt for a cure for tomorrow.
The Society has invested £5.6 million in three Centres of Excellence across the UK, and as a founder of the UK Dementia Research Institute (DRI), our £50m investment will power discoveries to prevent, treat and care for people with all types of dementia, as well as helping us to understand how to keep the brain healthy.
