Thank you to everyone who donated
Memory Walk for The Alzheimer’s Society
On Saturday 24th September 2016 My Special Event participated in the Portsmouth Memory Walk.
It was a 2.5km Walk raising money and awareness for the Alzheimers Society.
There were thousands of us who took part, all ages, fitness abilities and gender. It was such a fun thing to be part of.
Once the energizing warm-up was out of the way curiosity of the Zumba instructor the walk began.
The walk was in the sunny seaside town of Portsmouth at a local park not far from the Sealife Centre and War Memorial Museum.
I and my son (who was in the buggy) and my husband participated in the walk alongside the actress Emma Barton who is best known for playing Honey Mitchell in Eastenders. Lots of people including, Emma brought their dogs to the event so they could have a walk around too.
The walk was split into two lengths 2.5km and 5km and there were different routes mapped out for each walk.
In just over a 1hr and a bit the walk was over and done with and we all received a medal for our efforts and a well-deserved bottle of water.
After the event myself, my husband and my son along with a lot of other people who had the same idea all headed off to lunch at the local pub.
A great event, brilliantly organised and I would definitely do it again….maybe in a few years.
