About Alzheimer Scotland - Memory Walk Big Weekend 2020

Alzheimer Scotland’s Memory Walk is back for 2020 on Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 September and this year we're doing things differently.

This year won't be your average walk in the park - we'll be going virtual. It'll be your walk, your route, your way.

Our Memory Walk is an opportunity to come together with friends and family to show your support for people living with dementia.

Although this year we are walking virtually, we're still bringing thousands of people together across the country for one big weekend.

Why is the Memory Walk so important?

Each person walking will have a similar reason to do so; they’re walking for someone they care about. This could be a person currently living with dementia, a carer or in memory of someone. Memory Walks across Scotland have so far raised over £1 million since they began, helping to provide crucial support across the country for people with dementia, their families and carers.

Dementia is the biggest health and social care challenge faced by Scotland today. There are around 90,000 people living with dementia in Scotland and more than 1 million people living with dementia in the UK. Our aim is to put dementia firmly at the heart of our communities and to make sure that nobody faces the illness alone.

How do I get involved?

All we ask is that you sign up for FREE, ask your nearest and dearest to do the same and consider raising money for Alzheimer Scotland.

If you are unable to fundraise at this time please consider making a donation.

Once you are registered you'll have access to exclusive content. Then all that's left to do is choose where you will walk and who will join you.
