With every step you will help change the lives of people affected by dementia – now and in the future. Register yourself or a team, and start fundraising today!
Sign up and walk all over dementia today. Your £10 entry fee supports us to organise the day, but unfortunately it won’t beat dementia alone. This is why your fundraising is so important. An average Memory Walker raises over £160 each, so we suggest you set this as your fundraising target. But whatever your target, and whatever you raise, you will be changing the lives of those affected by dementia!
We’ll be here to support you every step of the way and you’ll receive a pack with everything needed for the event, including your Memory Walk t-shirt.
Thinking about taking part as a group? Invite your friends and family to join you by sharing the link and team code sent in your confirmation email. Team members can set individual fundraising targets, or you can fundraise together and work towards a team total.
Memory Walk will start and finish in the event site in front of the bandstand, which is located in between Abbey Park Road Car Park and the Boating Lake. Please note, this area is on grass.
Here, you’ll get ready to walk alongside hundreds of others, raising funds to defeat dementia. Take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for by leaving a message on the Memory Tree, and see it blossom throughout the morning.
There are two Memory Walk routes – you choose which to walk on the day of the event. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change, and suitable footwear is recommended.
The shorter 2.5km walk is a gentle stroll around Abbey Park and past the historic ruins which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages. The longer 6.5km walk is a little more challenging, and will take you around Abbey Park before walking along the banks of the River Soar and past the National Space Centre. Both routes are suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs with assistance.
There is no dedicated event parking, please use city centre parking and public transport. Abbey Park is 2km walk from Leicester train station. Buses run regularly from Leicester City Centre. Please consider the most sustainable method of transport, or car share where possible.
Registration will close Thursday 10th September 2020 and you will not be able to register at the event. So sign up now and get your team members to do so too!
