Star of Network 10’s iconic Neighbours Takaya Honda is preparing to host the Hobart Memory Walk & Jog event for Dementia Australia on Sunday 22 March at the Regatta Grounds.
Mr Honda is no stranger to the Memory Walk & Jog series, having performed as Master of Ceremonies in other years in Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra. He’s committed in his role as a Dementia Australia Ambassador after his mother was diagnosed with younger onset dementia in her early 50s.
“My family has received such vital support from the community and from Dementia Australia, so I was keen to do whatever I could to get involved and help the cause,” Mr Honda said. “Participating in events like Memory Walk & Jog provides an opportunity to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with dementia. I want to help ensure that everyone impacted by dementia is aware of and has access to the invaluable support that we received when my mum was diagnosed.”
Memory Walk & Jog is Dementia Australia’s largest fundraising initiative, and raises much-needed funds to help provide invaluable support, education and resources for people impacted by dementia in Tasmania and across Australia.
Participants can take part as an individual or as part of a group, and can choose from either a 2km, 6km or 8km run, walk or jog. Attendees are invited to help Dementia Australia raise the target of $1.3 million across the national series of 12 events, which the organisation is hoping will involve more than 10,000 participants across the country.
