Members from Benchmark International completed a Memory Walk last weekend to support the work done by the Alzheimer’s Society.
Memory Walks are held throughout the year around the UK to fund vital research conducted by the Alzheimer’s Society into the cause, care, cure and prevention of dementia.
Its ambitions are: “To reach every person who has a diagnosis and wants our help; to change the conversation on dementia and mainstream the rights of those affected by it; and drive the research agenda – working tirelessly to improve support today and unlock the answers for a cure tomorrow.”
The Benchmark International team members’ Memory Walk was organised for Heaton Park on 28th September, but due to torrential rain the park was waterlogged, and the event organisers had no choice but to cancel the event.
As such an important charity to support and as a testament to the amount of money raised, the team still went on to complete an 8km walk by themselves on an alternative route, completing a longer walk than the 7km originally planned.
