Join us for a family fun day out to create lovely memories for young and old alike. Take a gentle stroll around the beautiful pond which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. A gorgeous flat and scenic route for a straightforward circuit of Keptie Pond, often busy with cyclists, runners, dog walkers, and offering the chance to look for birdlife or watch canoeists or sailors on the water. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.
Whilst enjoying the fun activities please take the opportunity to take time and think of those you are walking for by completing your 'I'm Walking For' signs and adding a loving memory to our Memory Wall.
Why should you take part?
All funds raised at the Memory Walks will be reinvested into your local community. By fundraising for Alzheimer Scotland you will be enabling us to continue to fund:
- Our expansion of local Dementia Resource Centres and Community Groups that keep people free from isolation and connected to their community.
- Our network of local Dementia Advisors who provide vital support to people with dementia and their families throughout their time living with dementia.
- Our 24-Hour Freephone Helpline (0808 808 3000) which operates 365 days per year providing information and support to anyone concerned about or living with dementia.
- Our national and local campaigning work that ensures that the rights and voice of people with dementia and their carers are upheld and listened to at every level in our society.
- Our Research Centres and ongoing support of the Scottish Dementia Research Consortium in our quest to improve care today and ultimately find a cure for tomorrow.
