Fundraising Events - QLD

Dementia Australia (Qld) will be involved in a range of fundraising events in the coming months.

Memory Walk and Jog 2017

In 2017 Dementia Australia (Qld) is hosting four Memory Walk and Jog events across Queensland. This fundraising event is vital as dementia is the second biggest killer in Australia and there is no cure.

We want to raise more than $100,000 in 2017 to continue our vital frontline work to fight dementia, but we need your help to meet this target.
If you are unable to attend on the day, we encourage you to support the cause via our fundraising page.
On behalf of more than 77,633 Queenslanders living with dementia, thank you for your support.
