Cousins walking for Dementia

Half Marathon to Remember

We're taking on a Marathon to Remember and making a difference for people living with dementia!

Rosanna, Marilena, Pas, Carol and I, Annamaria are challenging ourselves to complete a Half Marathon - 21 kms, to raise funds to support people with Dementia.   Cousins from Sydney, Phil and Amy, will also be joining us from their end,  at the same time.  Our group is called, Cousins - Walking for Dementia.  

Our walk was to take place on Sunday 22nd August 2021 but unfortunately, due to more rigid Covid restrictions, WE WILL NOW POSTPONE IT UNTIL THE WEEKEND OF SATURDAY 11TH AND SUNDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER 2021.

We are doing this especially for my mum Maria, and aunty Isabella. 

Please help us reach our goal by making a donation. It only takes a minute and any amount you can give will go a long way to fund medical and social research and support the vital services, support groups and education programs that Dementia Australia provides to people living with dementia, their families and carers.

We had originally set our fundraising goal at $400, but due to your overwhelming generosity, we quickly exceeded this amount so WE ARE SETTING A NEW GOAL OF $1500 AND BEYOND.

If you have already placed a donation, thank you so much, but if you'd still like to donate, we would love your support.

---------------------------------------------------

So we completed our half marathon over the weekend in a Covid-safe way and we are very proud to announce that we actually DID IT!!! We raised over $2000, came 7th on the Leadership donation board, and most of all, achieved what we set out to achieve - a 'Marathon to Remember,' especially for my mum and aunty and all people and families touched by Dementia.

Thank you so much again.

Love from all of us.  xxoo
