Walking for the Alzheimer’s Society

Ellie Cooke explains why she is walking

Walking for Alzheimer’s Society
Ellie Cooke and her friends are doing the 26 mile walk for Alzheimer’s Society in September from Stonehenge to Avebury to raise money & awareness for Alzheimer’s Society.
One of Ellie’s dear friends lost their grandfather in 2012 and since then they have made it theirĀ  mission to help raise support and money for the Alzheimer’s Society. After seeing first hand justĀ  how devastating and mentally upsetting dementia can be, we are all determined to help the
Alzheimer’s Society and their research towards fighting dementia.
The Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading care and research charity for people suffering from dementia. Dementia can cause dramatic mood changes, severe memory loss and communication problems. Dementia is progressive which means that a sufferer’s symptoms will get gradually worse as time passes. Although there are medicines and therapies that can be used to relieve the symptoms, there is no immediate cure.
For the last three years the Archard family have organised a music festival called Imfest in the memory of their grandfather and to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Society. We hope to carry on raising awareness and funds with this walk – please donate and help us to beat this disease. We hope to help prevent families in the future from having to see first hand thedevastating effects dementia has.
We currently are training each week by doing walks and attending the gym to get ready for this trek!
