Join a Memory Walk in Wellington Election Day
Dementia is one of NZ's biggest healthcare challenges with more than 60,000 people living with dementia today. To raise awareness of dementia, this September we are hosting Memory Walks all over NZ.

This year, we are hosting two walks in the Wellington region:

  • Wellington: Saturday 23 September at 10.30am at Zealandia
  • Kapiti Coast: Sunday 24 September at 1.30pm at Otaihanga Domain

We are really excited to host a Memory Walk in Wellington's iconic eco sanctuary - Zealandia. Our friends at Zealandia are generously providing free entry for the day for Memory Walk participants. Zealandia encourages an active and involved community. They have a growing focus on the measurable health benefits from people having more contact with nature.

The Memory Walk in the Kapiti Coast has a twist this year - the walk from Otaihanga Domain to the beach will be an 'Improve Your Memory' Walk and include puzzles for the whole family aimed at keeping our brains healthy!
