What inspires you to walk or run for Alzheimer’s disease?
If you're like more than half of the walkers and runners at the Thanksgiving Memory Walk and Run, your efforts might be inspired by someone near and dear to you. And if so, we invite you to participate in Memory Lane by Manor Village.
For anyone not familiar with Memory Lane, this is a special tribute section of the walk & run route near the start and finish line in Eau Claire Market. And it's reserved for pictures, posters, special messages, song lyrics or whatever inspires you to take these steps.
So whether you’re a caregiver, family member, friend, coworker or someone who simply cares about Alzheimer's disease and other dementias in Calgary, we encourage you to post a special message along Memory Lane.
You'll get a coloured Memory Lane sheet inside your race package to get you started, or you can download a sample here. Or view some examples that were created by past participants here.
But really, there aren't any rules about what you can display along Memory Lane. If it comes from the heart, it belongs.
