"I love running and exercise and am always pushing myself and getting involved in fitness events. When I was told I could continue doing what I love whilst helping to raise awareness and funds for the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing I could not say no. Alzheimer's and dementia are such awful illnesses that affect so many people, and I am proud to be able to contribute to making a difference. My Mum works in a retirement village on the Northern Beaches and has seen firsthand the effects of dementia and how it affects not only the person, but the family and those around the sufferer, and that is what made me want to get on board. I believe exercise is one of the most important ways to keep your mind and body healthy and to prevent any degenerative or lifestyle diseases which is why I am so excited to be on board with CHeBA in creating awareness of how valuable habitual exercise can be, especially when commenced at a young age."
What does "Healthy Brains. Positive Ageing" mean to me?
Keeping our brains healthy through exercise leads to positve ageing. When we exercise it energises our body and mind; not many people don't feel good after an exercise session. Keeping our bodies active keeps us young and strong - we still will age but we will be more likely to maintain healthy and active lifestyles.
