Mark your calendars, Brighton! The date is set for the 2024 Memory Walk, a cherished event hosted by Alzheimer’s Society to raise money for dementia. This year’s walk will take place on September 29 at the picturesque Hove Lawns, and it promises to be a heartwarming day of community spirit and support.

The Brighton Memory Walk has become a significant event in our local calendar, drawing thousands of participants each year. Last year alone, the walk raised an impressive £116,000, all of which went towards supporting people living with dementia in the UK and funding crucial research into the disease.

Dementia is a growing concern, being the UK’s biggest killer, with one in three people born in the UK today expected to develop the condition. Alzheimer’s Society is at the forefront of the fight against dementia, providing help and hope for around one million people living with the condition in the UK. Every step taken and every pound raised during the Memory Walk will contribute to their vital work.

A spokesman for Alzheimer’s Society poignantly shared, "Walk for those you love, those you’ve lost, and for everyone living with dementia. By taking part in Memory Walk, we can help to end the devastation caused by dementia."

Participating in the Memory Walk is more than just a charitable act; it’s a way to honour loved ones affected by dementia and to stand in solidarity with the millions impacted by this condition. Whether you’re walking in memory of someone special or to support the cause, your involvement will make a difference.
