Hunter Memory Walk & Jog POSTPONED

Dementia Australia 2 mins read

Due to recent heavy rains, Dementia Australia has made the difficult decision to postpone Hunter Memory Walk & Jog, originally scheduled for this Sunday 12 May.

 

Our goal for Memory Walk & Jog is to have a fun-filled and safe community event to support people impacted by dementia. Our number one priority is to ensure the safety of all participants, staff and volunteers. The decision to postpone was recommended by local council and with the health and safety of all participants at the forefront.  

 

We are working to find a new event date that we hope to announce soon. For more information visit: https://www.memorywalk.com.au/event/hunter/home

 

Walk or jog with us. We are in this together.
