Support Alzheimer’s

22 September, 2019

Stretch your hand to help those suffering from the dreaded disease Alzheimer’s by participating in the yearly walk to decrease the pain of patients suffering the rapid increase of this disease in Sri Lanka. It will be a fun morning for you to enjoy, so register yourself to walk the five kilometres in and around Colombo, starting from Cinnamon Grand’s Angsana Spa Garden. The date is September 28 and all you have to do is register your participation by calling Lanka Alzheimer’s Foundation on 2667080. And by the way don’t forget your hats and umbrellas to beat the sun or the rain!

Not only in Sri Lanka but globally too, this is the month dedicated for Alzheimer’s where massive programs are carried out. As in the years past Cinnamon Grand has come forward to support this worthy cause along with the Police, print media, Walker Tours, Elephant House, Cargills, Medi-Calls, Nestle and their mobile van, the Balloon Team, the mobile DJ, Pet Packaging for drinking water, many donors of prizes and photographer Wasantha Jayasekera.

So need we tell you more!

Of course, the Foundation has not forgotten to give you the opportunity to win fabulous prizes by the purchase of raffle tickets at the premises. And the prizes – gee whiz! - the prizes include one night stay on full board basis for two at Citrus Waskaduwa, vouchers from Hilton Colombo, Hilton Colombo Residence, Galadari Hotel, Shangri-La, Spa Vouchers from our very own Spa Ceylon and vouchers from Ramani Fernando Salons, Cutting Station and Capello.

Do remember that all participants must be present by 8 am to register – so that the walk could start on time. Refreshments on a complimentary basis will be provided for participants only. Seniors who find it difficult to walk can hop the air conditioned luxury bus provided by Walker Tours, and thus contribute their support while enjoying the fellowship with the others.

So what are you waiting for – put on your walking shoes!
