Prime Minister Tony Abbott was an enthusiastic participant in the inaugural Wipeout Dementia Surf Off at Queenscliff on Saturday 23 May 2015, raising almost $100,000 for The Dementia Momentum initiative at the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA).

"Research is incredibly important for all our futures because with life expectancies getting up to the mid-80s and beyond a lot more people are going to end up with dementia of one form or another," said Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

He said the government had committed at the election to spend an extra $200 million on dementia research.
