New Sunshine Coast ambassador for Australia’s largest dementia fundraiser!

“Memory Walk & Jog”, Australia’s largest dementia fundraiser, is pleased to announce its new ambassador for Queensland, Jamie Milne from “Jamie Milne Training” on the Sunshine Coast!

Jamie Milne is an experienced, in-demand trainer from the Sunshine Coast and is excited to share his knowledge about all things health and fitness as Memory Walk & Jog’s newest ambassador for Queensland in memory of his late grandmother, who passed away after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

“My grandmother played a key role in my upbringing and I always wanted to do something to honour her memory,” said Jamie.

“This disease of forgetfulness stole the one person in my life I never wanted to lose, she was a mother to me, a friend and a nurturer.” 

“Becoming the Memory Walk & Jog Ambassador in Queensland is a real honour for me.”

“The event supports my core beliefs and values in living an active and healthy lifestyle. These events promote the value and necessity to keep moving - because if you don't use it, you lose it!

“A walk is a great idea because it is accessible allowing and encouraging the whole community to get involved to help support this very important cause for someone close to them.” 

“I personally want to help create a community of happy, healthy and knowledgable people and spread this message of active living throughout the Queensland community and onto the nation.”

Memory Walk & Jog is the largest fundraiser for dementia in Australia. In 2017, Alzheimer’s Australia will hold 18 Memory Walk & Jog events around the country, including 4 in Queensland to raise funds to support people living with dementia, their families and carers, and help promote brain health and healthy lifestyles to all Australians. All courses are wheelchair accessible and there are different distances to choose from, depending on your age and fitness level.

Opal Aged Care is the major supporter of the 2017 Memory Walk & Jog in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.
