It’s time again for the Memory Walk

Once again the annual Memory Walk organized by the Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation kicks off on October 11 from the Angsana Spa Garden of the Cinnamon Grand Hotel. This is the sixth year in succession that the Walk is taking place.

A fun-filled morning is promised as Cinnamon Grand welcomes all participants of the walk to a light breakfast.

The Walk has been supported over the years by Nestle Lanka Limited, with their speciality van serving Milo, with Ceylon Cold Stores having chilled drinks and meat items.

The Medi-Centre Ambulance will be on stand-by, and a large bus courtesy Walkers Tours for any of the elderly who attend the walk but prefer a bus ride.

At the end of the walk, the Memory Walk Raffle Draw will be held with a grand prize of a return air ticket to Singapore courtesy Singapore Airlines waiting to be won amongst many other prizes!

The five km walk is being held with the support of the Traffic Police. Water is provided by Pet Packaging to beat the heat. The walk is scheduled to start by 8 a.m.

Organisers are requesting the community to support the walk to help create a bigger impact on the need to assist the fast ageing population in Sri Lanka and the related diseases suffered by them.
