Join Dementia Auckland on this incredible opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of those affected by dementia.
The Hike for Health brings together supporters from various New Zealand and Australian health and medical research organisations for an adventure trek to the Great Wall of China. You’ll be part of an incredible team, raising awareness and funds for a health organisation close to your heart. You’ll stand united, as a team, atop the Great Wall, knowing the difference you’ve made.
On the Hike for Health, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture.
Starting in Beijing, you’ll quickly swap the hustle and bustle of the city for the majesty of the Great Wall. You will challenge yourself like never before as you trek on remote and unrestored paths, between mountains, through local villages and across rolling farmlands. With the support of our expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Immerse yourself in the ancient history of this World Wonder, explore Beijing’s Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, and experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square.
Best of all, you will be raising funds for Dementia Auckland to ensure all people in Auckland affected by dementia receive the support they need to make the most of every day.
Our vision is that all people in Auckland affected by dementia receive the support they need to make the most of every day.
We do this by providing a wide range of services and support across the greater Auckland region. Dementia Key Workers offer intensive support and practical strategies for the carer of a person with dementia, including home visiting, telephone consultations, and support groups. The Living Well with Dementia Socialisation team offers meaningful and interest based activities throughout the area, providing the person with dementia opportunities for friendship and activity, while providing respite for the carer. The Education team provides in-depth information and strategies to carers, the general community and to other service providers.
We are the only organisation that delivers free services to people living with dementia in Auckland.
