Alzheimer’s Society is encouraging fundraisers in Wales to take on a walking challenge and join hundreds of people to raise awareness of dementia at Trek26 Brecon Beacons.

By signing up to a 13 or 26-mile trek across the breath-taking countryside on July 8, avid hikers and those who love the great outdoors can experience some of Wales’ most stunning landscapes.

Both the 26 and 13-mile routes will start at Cantref Farm before commencing the climb up to Fan y Big at a height of 717 metres. The 13 mile route will then descend Gist Wen, with great views across Brecon town centre.

The 26-mile route will follow the Brecon Way until you reach Talybont Reservoir, when you’ll join onto the tow path of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal before heading back to the finish.

Alzheimer’s Society supports people affected by dementia through some of the hardest and most frightening time. The charity provide hope by joining forces with people affected by dementia, leading scientists and policy makers to push for cutting edge breakthroughs and change that’ll improve the lives of people affected by dementia, now and in the future.

It is only with the generous help of supporters that Alzheimer’s Society can carry out its vital work to be there for those who need it most.

Money raised from Trek26 Brecon Beacons will help ensure that Alzheimer’s Society can reach those who need it most.
