Walk or Push against Dementia


On your marks, get set, go! After the huge success of last year’s Run, Walk or Push against Dementia, which saw 500 people make their way around Knole Park, it’s time to dig out those running shoes and start the stopwatch as it returns in May!

Sunday 13 May 2018 is the date for your diary with timed 3, 5 and 10k courses suitable for everyone from parents with pushchairs to seasoned runners.

Last year, your involvement helped to raise over £4,500, which funded dementia friendly projects across the District, including the new Forget-me-not café in Knole which provides support and companionship to those who are living with memory issues or dementia.

So, why not sign up again and help make this year bigger than ever and fundraise for the Sevenoaks Area Dementia Friendly Community Forum who are organising the event this year.

Only five-hundred places are available, so sign up now to avoid disappointment and take advantage of a whole host of benefits such as a 10% discount at Up & Running and more.

To sign up and to see all the details, go to www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/runwalkpush  

If you have any questions, please email communities@sevenoaks.gov.uk or ring 01732 227000.
