Wheelchair user Donald Delmohamed is independently taking on a one-mile memory walk in his wheelchair at The MacIntyre Dementia Project’s ‘Memories and Miles’ in Milton Keynes on Sunday October 7.
Raising awareness of dementia and learning disabilities means a great deal to Donald and all of the money raised from the fundraiser will support people living with dementia and their loved ones via MacIntyre’s Memory Cafés.
Donald said: “What makes this even more difficult is that I am doing it by myself, no one is pushing me and I will be using my hands to push my wheelchair myself. This is the first time I’ve done anything like this before. I am training by going swimming and in order to take part I have to take a pain injection to help with the pain in my spine. I find it difficult to walk long distances. The money raised will go to support MacIntyre Milton Keynes Memory Café, at Great Holm.”
