What are fundraisers saying?
I wanted to honour the impact she had on my life and help raise funds for dementia, and this was made possible through running the Adelaide Marathon. I was able to couple my passion for running with a strong desire to raise funds for dementia and honour Nonna Ida.

It was a great opportunity for team building and networking with people from other Councils. City of Burtnside staff voted Dementia Australia to be the charity partner for the 2019 Metro Games, with participating Councils raising total of $4,000.
- The Local Government Metropolitan Games in Burnside, South Australia
As Nanna loves to colour in, I came up with an idea of designing a colouring book, 'Inspired by Nanna'. I wanted to be able to help raise funds, awareness and also help to improve the quality of life of people living with dementia.

Fundraising with Dementia Australia was uplifting, with support and guidance being given at every step of the 12 month journey. We can't wait to do it all again with you!
