But is this simply a way of raising funds, rather than awareness to some charities.
At the end of the day dementia awareness should be done every month in as many ways as we can.
I am sure that if everyone who is interested whether they have the illness or are caring for someone, who has it, raises awareness as they travel around the message will get out much better, and the public will take to it better than assuming that it is just a way for charities to use the event to raise funds.
Dementia awareness is not just September as a friends mentioned yesterday.
It's January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December
So please let's all remember that we must raise awareness every day, of every month of the year. Dementia does and should not be publicised and pushed just one month of each year, because we are living with this every day of the year
