As a continued supporter of the Alzheimer’s Society, Tracey is supporting the Kent Memory Walk, taking place on 1st October, and encouraging constituents to sign up for this fantastic cause.
Memory Walk is Alzheimer’s Society‘s flagship fundraising event, which sees 31 flagship walks taking place around the UK during September and October. This year more than 100,000 walkers are expected to take part in events around the country. People take part for a number of reasons. Some walk to be amongst those who truly understand the condition, some walk to celebrate loved ones, some simply walk to show their support for the cause. But everyone walks with one common goal: to fight dementia.
Tracey said: “Dementia is one of the biggest health and social care challenge facing our community. As an MP, I remain committed in helping break down the stigma surrounding dementia and ensuring those affected in Chatham & Aylesford get the support they need to live well. The Memory Walk is a great way for people in Kent to come together and raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society, as their biggest fundraiser of the year. I am therefore encouraging people to visit the website and find out more about the event and how to sign up.”
