Katharine Evans, Fundraising Business Manager, is looking forward to our GLOW walks in 2020.
Every year I wait excitedly for the opportunity to volunteer at Memory Walk, and now at GLOW too – our new sponsored night-time walks.
Volunteering at these events is a lot of fun and you meet so many inspirational people, both volunteers and walkers. I’m always reminded of why I do my day job. The personal stories I hear, and the joy and heartache shared openly in every conversation, mean that I go back to work with a renewed sense of purpose.
In March 2020, our new GLOW walks will be taking to the streets in locations from Belfast to London, and from Tyneside to Bristol.
‘A beautiful atmosphere is created by the colours of so many glowsticks, and the spirit of coming together for a single cause,’ says Katharine.
Like our regular Memory Walks, they’re 2–10km long. People of all ages and abilities take part, and they have so many different reasons for doing it. However, everyone there shares a passion for wanting to celebrate loved ones and to unite against dementia.
The fact that GLOW walks are after dark adds a magical twist. A beautiful atmosphere is created by the colours of so many glowsticks, and the spirit of coming together for a single cause.
I hope you can join us at your nearest GLOW walk – it’s a wonderful way to help make a difference.
