2024 date to be confirmed.
Walk For A Cure is a brand new walking event organised by the UK's leading dementia research charity, Alzheimer’s Research UK.
It gives everyone impacted by dementia a wonderful opportunity to come together in a stunning location to walk, talk and support the charity and each other.
Walk 5K through the stunning London regional park, Lee Valley Park, before collecting your medal and celebrating your achievement in the event village with other supporters.
To unite walkers even more, each walker will receive a t-shirt and lanyard in the colour relating to the main reason they're walking.
Walk For A Cure is an inclusive space for everyone.
Walk for someone you love to show you care and to take positive steps towards a cure.
Walk in memory of a special person to remember them, honour them and keep memories alive.
One in two people in the UK will either develop dementia, care for someone with the condition, or both. This cannot go on. We need to Walk For A Cure.
Walk For A Cure is an event for everybody.
Lee Valley Park
The 5K walk will be entirely within Lee Valley Park on accessible paths along a well-marked route and completely traffic-free.
Everyone will receive a t-shirt and lanyard in the colour which shows the main reason they are walking.
At the end of the walk your lanyard will become your medal!
The bespoke medals are an eco-friendly, wooden design.
We exist for a cure.
If nothing changes, one in two of us will be directly affected by dementia. We will either care for someone with dementia, develop it ourselves, or both.
This cannot go on.
