Walk to Remember Alzheimer's WA
The Governor’s welcome at the Walk to Remember

Walk to remember with Alzheimer’s WA

The beautiful gardens of Government House were the setting for the Alzheimer’s WA Walk to Remember charity event today.

Over 550 family, friends, carers and pets came together to walk the one, three or five kilometres from Government House down to Riverside Drive and back again – all to make a difference to the lives of people living with dementia.

The Governor is Patron of Alzheimer’s WA, who engage with 42,000 West Australians living with all types of dementia.

Dementia is the leading cause of death of women in Australia and the second leading cause of death of all Australians.

According to Alzheimer’s WA, without a medical breakthrough, the number of West Australians living with dementia is projected to increase rapidly to almost 150,000 in the next four decades.

As the dementia experts, Alzheimer’s WA employs over 200 staff and provides direct care, support, education and information to assist people living with dementia as well as their families and carers.

The Walk to Remember is part of a $250K fundraising effort to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s.

Every dollar raised at the Walk to Remember helps to ensure Alzheimer’s WA is always here for those living with dementia.
