Walk With Me – Spruce Grove Firefighters Cancer Walk 2011

Here we are again. The glorious team in pink out doing anything we can do to help raise money for women’s cancers. It was a blistering couple days in Calgary but that didn’t deter us from walking 60 km over the course of 2 days, blisters and broken bones included.

“Walk With Me” is a song I wrote in dedication to not just our, but everyone’s efforts that weekend. I feel the lyrics have a strong representation of the emotions everyone feels while taking part in the glorious, but testing event. I personally played the instruments (yes drums included), sang, as well as shot the photos and videos from the ground up, as well as edited the clip, so needless to say alot of time and effort has gone into its creation, so I REALLY REALLY hope you enjoy it!

Memory Walk Marathon 2010 – Avebury to Stonehenge – Alzheimer’s Society

http://www.alzheimers.org.uk

Memory Walk Marathon 2010 was an exciting challenge that took walkers through 6,000 years of British history. Walking the equivalent distance of a marathon, walkers started at the stone circle of Avebury and finished at the world heritage site of Stonehenge. This film tells the moving stories of some of the people who took part, and shows some of the incredible scenery and atmosphere on the day.

Our route took us from Avebury, past Silbury Hill south, walking by the Pewsey White Horse, along the Kennet and Avon Canal and then south across Salisbury Plain where the mystical stone circle of Stonehenge was our dramatic finish line.

Memory Walk is Alzheimer’s Society’s biggest annual fundraiser and a great opportunity to have a fun day out with friends and family.

This year thousands of people took part in Memory Walk around the country, raising money to support people with dementia and their carers.

For more information on Memory Walk please visit http://www.memorywalk.org.uk or call 0870 417 0192.

There are more than 750,000 people in the UK affected by dementia with numbers set to rise to 1 million by 2021. More than half of these have Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading care and research charity for people with dementia and those who care for them.
