KEEN Wee County walkers are being urged to lace up and complete miles for a charity this September.

Alzheimer Scotland, which recently launched its Alloa Dementia Resource Centre, has launched its Memory Walk fundraising campaign.

People are being asked to sign up, raise funds and vital awareness by completing a walk over the weekend of September 16-18.

Those taking part can choose somewhere with a special meaning at any time during the weekend to complete a walk, anything from a lap in the garden to an epic hike.

Kirsty Stewart, Alzheimer Scotland stakeholder engagement executive lead, said: “I am delighted to be welcoming back Alzheimer Scotland’s annual Memory Walk.

“Now in its fifth year, it is a great opportunity to bring the dementia community together; to be able to connect, celebrate, raise awareness, remember loved ones and show support for people living with dementia, their family members and carers.

“It’s only with the help of our incredible supporters that we can continue to be there for people living with dementia and their families.

“This event always brings with it a sense of hope, reinvigoration, and community that I can’t wait to get involved with again this year.

“I look forward to seeing those that regularly support our Memory Walks, and hopefully meet a few new faces, too.

“Together we can make sure nobody faces dementia alone.”

The event is free to take part in with people encourage to raise as much as they can for the good cause.

Participants will have the option to create a team with friends, family or colleagues and fundraise via their own personalised Memory Walk page.

The Memory Walk will take place over three days including a Friday, giving workplaces the opportunity to take part in the charitable activity.
