Lauren Goddard and Hayley Newell, from Colchester, will join the fight against dementia in March 2017, as they don their walking boots to trek the magnificent Grand Canyon.
Lauren and Hayley hope to raise over £7,000 for Alzheimer’s Society by taking part in the five day trek starting on 26 March 2017. This trek inside one of the most famous Canyons in the world, also passes some spectacular landscapes, breath-taking waterfalls, pools of turquoise blue and learning from our hosts the Native American Reservation. This tough challenge will help the UK’s leading dementia charity continue its vital work to support the 800,000 people currently living with the condition.
Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer’s Society, said:
‘We are delighted that Lauren and Hayley are giving their time to support Alzheimer’s Society. One in three people over 65 will develop dementia. As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals like Lauren and Hayley to help us continue our vital work. Please back Lauren and Hayley in their fundraising efforts so that Alzheimer’s Society can continue leading the fight against dementia.’
