Sweat for Dementia

Sat Nov 11, 06:00 - Sat Nov 11, 17:00

Hey Joe Brewing Company


We initially began raising funds for our mom's dementia care, but now we are committed to helping towards wider dementia care, awareness, support and in particular awareness for homeless people with dementia. We will be raising funds for DementiaSA and Franschhoek Hospice.

A few of us who are again now UNFIT are going to get into gear and train to swim 1.6 km, mountain bike 65 km, and run 21 km in Franschhoek to raise the money.

The 2021 event was a great day and enjoyed by all and we look forward to another fun day sweating for a great cause.

ALL of the funds raised will go towards the local Hospice and DementiaSA with the hopes of a greater awareness campaign.

When you make a donation it will be split equally among the above recipients, unless you specify a recipient.

It occurred to me that if I left my mom on a street for a night she would be confused and seem mad to people and likely be mistreated and cast aside. I am worried about how many homeless people out there have been thrown out or cast aside as people don’t know that they have dementia or how to look after them or who to call.

We hope that this awareness campaign will contribute to helping those who cannot help themselves, and enabling those who can help to do so.
