Dementia is the second leading cause of death of Australians and provisional data is showing that dementia will soon likely be the leading cause of death of Australians. Dementia is the leading cause of death for women.

They had a great time at their first Memory Walk & Jog last year with their team, Dad’s Army and were Adelaide’s top fundraisers, raising more than $17,000.
