Every year on 21 September, World Alzheimer’s Day unites people living with dementia around the world. There are more than 36 million people with dementia worldwide and by conquering the world’s highest free-standing mountain on World’s Alzheimer’s Day, we will be helping to fight to make sure that dementia is recognised as a global health priority.
I am today going to summit Mt Kilimanjaro in honour of my late Grandpa Jack who passed away from Alzheimer’s Australia NSW. I made a promise soon after my grandpa passed, when I was in Africa, that I would Conquer Kili for him.
This is a killer disease and it’s affecting many Australian lives- we need to make a change and raise awareness. We can do things to prevent it, and by raising such funds, we can hopefully find a cure.
