WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S

It’s that time again, when friends and supporters of the Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation help to create awareness of this rapidly increasing dreaded disease.

Saturday, September 28 is your date with the Foundation as you register to walk the 5 kilometres in and around Colombo starting from the Cinnamon Grand’s Angsana Spa Garden.

In keeping with the dedicated month for Alzheimer’s where globally, massive programmes are carried out, LAF concludes their annual two main events held in September with the Walk. Graciously sponsored over the years – the Cinnamon Grand together with the Police, print media, Walkers Tours, Elephant House products, Cargills, Medi-Calls, Nestle and their mobile van, the popular helium filled balloon supplier – Balloon Team, the mobile Dj, Pet Packaging for drinking water, donors of prizes and photographer Wasantha Jayasekera, all of who have helped to make this event a huge success year after year! So readers - pull out your walking shoes and get ready!

This year too, participants are encouraged to buy a raffle ticket at the premises and souvenirs that will be displayed on site. Fabulous prizes are on offer such as a one night stay on full board basis for two at Citrus Waskaduwa, vouchers for dining from Hilton Colombo, Hilton Colombo Residence, Galadari Hotel, Shangri-La, Spa Vouchers from our very own Spa Ceylon, and vouchers from Ramani Fernando Salons, Cutting Station and Capello. Many of you could walk away with a lovely prize yourself.

All participants must be there at 8 am to register, to enable the walk to get started on time. Refreshments are provided for participants only. Seniors who are unable to walk can hop the air conditioned luxury bus that’s provided by Walkers Tours so that they too in their own way contribute their support in creating awareness whilst enjoying the ride and fellowship amongst other seniors.

Do call the Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation on 2667080 to register your participation. Do come along with your hats and umbrellas to beat the sun or rain! A fun morning is yours to enjoy!

Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation continues to create awareness by organizing such events year round and cannot be more grateful to donors and participants who attend these events.
