THE Hunter Memory Walk and Jog will be held at Speers Point Park this Sunday, but it's not too late to get involved.
Participants can turn up and register on the day for either the 2km or 7.5km walk, jog or run.
People pay a registration fee to enter, and the money raised supports the work of Dementia Australia, which provides support, education and resources for people living with dementia in Australia, their carers, families and friends.
"You can walk to remember a loved one, or in support of a friend or neighbour, and you can participate either as part of a group or individually," Dementia Australia CEO Maree McCabe said.
"The course is family-friendly, and, no matter your age or level of fitness, we encourage you to participate and join in the fun. Everyone is welcome! You can even register a place for your dog, who will receive a free Memory Walk and Jog bandana.
"There are still spots available for the 2km or 7.5km walk, jog or run, so join us by registering online at www.memorywalk.com.au, or come along and register on the day itself. And if you can't take part, you can still show your support by making a donation on the website."
There will be prizes for the top fundraisers, as well as raffles, entertainment for the whole family, food stalls, and a special guest appearance from Memory Walk and Jog mascot, Al the Elephant.
Regiser online at memorywalk.com.au, or register on the day from 7am.
