Why We Fundraise

Our vision is to change people's lives one walk at a time. Join us this September in support of Alzheimer's WA in raising funds for people living with Alzheimer's.

"I'm excited at the opportunity to be able to work with and fundraise for a cause I have experienced first hand. I lost my nan in 2018 to Alzheimer's and saw the impact this disease had, not only on her but also my family around providing care and support. I look forward to helping others living with Alzheimer's and those caring for them by giving them opportunities to get out and walk in nature." 

Betina Crooks - Director (Off The Grid 365)
