Walks held to raise funds for Alzheimers

Have your say

NEXT month dozens of people in Rotherham will be taking part in a variety of walks to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

The walk is both a fundraising event and a means of remembering loved ones and is open to adults and their families.

The Memory Walk, as it is known, is open to people with a range of abilities and fitness levels. There is a one mile, three mile and six-mile walk and all walks are wheelchair friendly.

The walk begins at 10.30am at Rother Valley Country Park and participants are required to sign in beforehand. There will also be a range of activities on offer at the park to mark the event, including raffles, tombolas and craft stalls.
