Walk Your Way to Defy Dementia

22nd to 28th March 2021

Introducing Walk Your Way to Defy Dementia

From 22nd to 28th of March we are asking you to put on your shoes and support the pioneering research being undertaken at Lancaster University. As we are unable to get together for a walk this year we are asking you to take part however you can in your local area.

No matter where you are in the world, you can simply sign up, share your stories and support us with donations and sponsorship. Every step that you take and every penny that you make will help us to make a real difference in our continued fight against one of the world’s major diseases.

If you would like to get involved simply follow the three simple steps below…

Step 1 - Sign up

Click here to sign up to our event, it is entirely free of charge.

Once you have signed up you will receive an email containing full details about the event and the great work you are about to undertake.


Step 2 - Walk Your Way

Do what you can between the 22nd and 28th of March. Take a trip to your local park or beach or even take part in the comfort of your own home. Simply put on your walking shoes and get going, but remember to adhere to the current government guidelines

Don’t forget to take some photos whilst on your walk so we can share the great work you are doing with all of our followers.


Step 3 - Share and Support

We can’t wait to hear about how you walked your way to Defy Dementia, so please share your stories on our social media channels.

You can also raise money for us by getting people to sponsor your walk.  You can do this by setting up your own fundraising page through this JustGiving link or you can download the paper sponsorship forms from your welcome pack once you sign up.

Don’t worry if you are unable to collect sponsorship donations, you can also support our campaign with online, postal or text donations.  


Sign up for Walk Your Way to Defy Dementia and do something amazing today!

We will also be offering those who support us through this event exclusive access to a virtual question and answer session with two of our research associates in April. Our team will also provide an update on our research as well as their day to day work, so don’t miss out!

Long term supporters Unique Care have kindly agreed to sponsor the event and a number of their staff will be taking part during the course of the week.

We can’t wait to get going and hear your amazing stories, so sign up today to make sure you are part of something special this year.

We are walking together, Defying Dementia.
