The Dementia Momentum Appeal
This March, Colliers International Residential is the proud partner of The Dementia Momentum Appeal and we are calling upon you to join us in transforming the future of dementia in Australia. Our goal for 2018 is for our network to raise funds for research at the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA) to advance their world class research into Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
With dementia now the second leading cause of death in Australia and the leading cause of death in the United Kingdom, my hope is that you will view supporting this cause as critical and valuable as I do. With one in 10 people over the age of 65 now with dementia your donation to this appeal will help forge a future where members of your family and friends and your work colleagues are less likely to be diagnosed with this insidious and devastating disease.
Research into Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias is highly labour-intensive and therefore very expensive. I encourage all of you to dig deep to support the collaboration Colliers has established with CHeBA to allow their leading academics to navigate the complexities of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and expedite their research into risk reduction, prevention and earlier intervention of these disease.
The time is now to help change the future of ageing in this country. Watch the video on our home page here.
There are a number of ways that you can support The Dementia Momentum initiative, including:
- Surf and fundraise in the Colliers’ team in Wipeout Dementia in November;
- Participate in a Drive Out Dementia Day;
- Make a direct donation to the Colliers International Fund for The Dementia Momentum during March.
