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 at Bents Exhibition Park which is located off Sea road right by the beach. 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 1.5km walk is a gentle stroll along the coastline which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages. This route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs with assistance.
The longer 7km walk is a little more challenging and will take you further along the North East coastline. This route is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs due to the nature of the pathways.
There is no dedicated event parking, please use city centre parking and public transport. Please arrive in good time to avoid queues Please note that parking off Sea Road is pay & display, and only accessible for arrival untul 15 minutes before the event start time. Visit South Tyneside Council website for more information on parking charges. All council car parks are pay & display using cash, or the RingGo mobile app. Please consider the most sustainable method of transport, or car share where possible.
Registration will close Thursday 1st October 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!
