Myall Park Tennis Club is excited to host a Dementia Australia Memory Walk & Jog. To be held again in August 2020. In beautiful Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest starting and finishing at the club in Yamba St on Sunday 25 August 2019.  Our Memory Walk & Jog is the perfect way to get together with friends, keep fit and have a great time while raising valuable funds and awareness for Dementia Australia.

Choose from 2km, 6km or 10km and walk, jog or run and help Australia Get Active and Beat Dementia.  Dementia is the condition that will have the greatest social and economic impact of our time. In NSW there are an estimated 146,007  people living with dementia, and the services provided by Dementia Australia have never been in higher demand.

All funds raised increase Dementia Australia’s ability to provide vital support services, such as counselling, support groups, education to help family carers and professional training across NSW. These services reduce feelings of isolation and empower people living with dementia and those caring for them. With your help, we can show our community is ensuring Dementia Australia’s support is always available to those who need it.
