5km Run / Walk Against Dementia
Sunday 19th April 2020
The 5km Connally's Real Estate Run / Walk Against Dementia is a picturesque course starting and finishing at Barrack Reserve in the heart of Heathcote. Runners will take in some of Heathcote's hidden gems in the Liquid Ambers and the McIvor Creek Trail.
This is a low key event, similar in style to the popular parkrun phenomenon in that this also encourages the participation of the local community in promoting health, fitness and your wellbeing.
Times are not as important. The aim is to finish and to support a great cause.
All participants will receive a specially crafted ‘Forget Me Not’ (which is the symbol for dementia) medals of participation at the finish line.
Proudly sponsored by Connally's Real Estate.

Dementia is the single greatest cause of disability in older Australians. More than 413,000 Australians live with dementia and this number is expected to increase to more than 536,000 by 2025.
For every one person with dementia, it is estimated 10 people – family, children and friends – live with the disease as carers.
The proposed 150-place state-of-the-art Heathcote Dementia Village Project will:
be the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere
focus on developing models of care that meet consumer needs and are cost effective.
seek to close service gaps in dementia care
ensure care is affordable.
be designed as a teaching/research/workforce development centre and employ 260 staff.
Help us support the Heathcote Dementia Village Project and the Heathcote Dementia Alliance.
