31 Miles in May

Take on 31 Miles in May.

Enjoy the warmer days and the longer evenings while doing something really special for people with dementia in the Mater.

This May, we need you! Could you walk, jog or run 31 Miles in May to support Dementia Care in the Mater Hospital?

It’s a great opportunity for family members, friends and carers of loved ones with dementia to get out in the fresh air, enjoy some exercise and put a spring in your step for a fantastic cause 🧡.

How it works:

    • Get the word out – let your loved ones, friends and colleagues know about the challenge you’ve set yourself, and be sure to share your fundraising page.
    • When Wednesday, 1st May arrives, it’s time to get moving. Every Mile ‘Mater’s’ and the funds you raise will make a world of difference.
    • Once you’ve completed your 31 Miles by the end of the challenge, we’ll send you a special Mater Hospital Foundation certificate to celebrate your achievement.

Mater Hospital Foundation - RITA helping dementia patients on St Anne's Ward

Demonstrating the RITA Device in St. Anne’s Ward

Many of us will be affected by dementia in our lifetime.

Whether that means facing dementia ourselves or caring for a loved one with the condition. That’s why it is so important to work together to provide the very best support to those facing this journey in their lives.

Here in the Mater Hospital Foundation, we are committed to being there to support patients in the Hospital.

Supporters like you have already done so much for our hospital, like refurbishing St. Anne’s Dementia Friendly Ward and funding the unique ‘RITA’ (Reminiscence/Rehabilitation & Interactive Therapy Activities) technology that helps patients remember and share events from their past and so much more.
