Memory Walk is the annual event for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW- and what a fantastic day it was.
I flew up from Melbourne just to be a part of this day and was so honoured to be a part of the team. There was so much love, support and friendliness between all participants.
There were 1000’s of entrants, 1000’s of $ raised and so much fun had.
We had P J Lane as the MC getting the crows ready and charming everyone as he always does. Jumping castles and face painting for the kids. There was loads of yummy food including the Sausage sizzle provided by the lovely people at the Rotary Club. And I had the fun job of being on the merchandise with the gorgeous Christine from the fundraising office at Alzheimer’s Australia NSW. We had pins, elephant squishy toys, Memory Walk shirts and Caps. They sold like hot cakes – and I was there promoting the Climb2Remember which I will do in September.
I always for get how emotional I get at these days – I sat down to write the leaf below to go on the memory tree and I cried the whole time. I am so passionate and dedicated to this charity on behalf of my Grandpa. Grandpa Jack passed away in 2008 from Alzheimer’s. He was a delight and a pleasure and it was so sad that this disease took that. Luckily his resilient personality and loving never died and he was wthe warm and happy Grandpa I always knew. I miss him everyday.
This is a beautiful way to collect donations and allow people to express their wishes to their loved ones.
I am so glad I went for this event and got to be part of the day. We were also blessed with wonderful weather.
