For 2022’s Year of Health, Sue Cook, DSCallards, set a challenge to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Society by walking 25 km in a single day.
Sue is already training hard for the challenge. With her two friends, Clare Chamberlain and Emma Puckett, Sue will walk 25 km on Saturday 6th August 2022 along the beautiful South West Coastal Path as part of the South West Coast Action Challenge. Sue is hoping to raise in the region of £500 for this worthy cause.
More than 520,000 people in the UK suffer from dementia which is caused by Alzheimer’s disease and this figure is set to rise. Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever.
Until the day they find a cure, they are focusing on creating a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted and are able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
Sue commented, “I am not overly known for my natural athleticism, so part of the challenge I have set for myself for this years “Year of Health” is to raise some funds for Alzheimer’s Society by walking 25km in a single day of the South West Coast Path on August 6th. Over the last twelve months my husband Neil, who works in the private adult care sector, has worked with several clients who suffer from this terrible disease, and we have witnessed first-hand how it has robbed families of their relatives and loved ones. So please dig deep. Your donation will give help and hope to people living with dementia and countless others affected by the condition during the most difficult times of their lives.”
