Be a Daredevil for Dementia

Monday 4 July 12:00

Local thrill-seekers are being encouraged to ‘Be a Daredevil for Dementia’ this summer to help raise funds to support the work of Jersey Alzheimer’s Association.

Supporters have already booked a group skydive for 4th September, and preparations are being finalized for a sponsored abseil down Mont Orgueil Castle over the weekend of 20th and 21st August.

And with the growth in popularity of extreme sports and other active pursuits, the charity is hoping to inspire Islanders seeking a new challenge to come up with daring and exciting ideas to raise funds.

Mark Blamey, manager at Jersey Alzheimer’s Association (JAA), said: “Jersey is a great place to try a range of adventurous and outdoor activities, especially in the summer, and we’re keen to encourage anyone looking to do something a bit out of the ordinary to consider supporting JAA as well as challenge themselves.”

“So, if you’ve never experienced the exhilaration of freefall with a tandem skydive, attempted to break a record, or done something you might consider daring – or just a little bit different – why not have a go this summer?”

Jersey Alzheimer’s Association is an independent charity which provides help and support to anyone affected by dementia, including the friends and families of individuals living with dementia and those who provide care. JAA’s website contains lots of useful information: www.jerseyalzheimers.com

Anyone looking to ‘Be a Daredevil for Dementia’ or who wishes to take part in the JAA’s sponsored abseil or the September skydive, please contact Mark Blamey at mark@jerseyalzheimers.com or on 07700 336627.
