Thousands of people took to the streets of Manchester at the weekend to unite against dementia.
More than 3,400 attended Alzheimer’s Society’s special 5km night walk, known as Ready Steady GLOW, which started and finished at Media City.
Participants, most of whom were walking in memory of – or to pay tribute to – a loved one affected by dementia, formed a sea of blue in their Memory Walk T-shirts as they made their way along the city’s waterfront.
From there, they snaked their way across some of the city’s iconic bridges and past the famous Imperial War Museum and Lowry Theatre.
Borough Care staff Executive Team at Borough recently took part in an Alzheimer’s Memory Walk, which took place at more people taking part Heaton Park in Manchester. The group of 12, along with one of the team’s dog, walked a total of 7km around the park. So far, the group has raised over £500 for Alzheimer’s Society. Alzheimer’s Society is a charity for anyone affected by dementia.
