Bulgaria - Let’s run away from dementia together

  • South Park (in front of the pigeon monument) Sofia Bulgaria (map)

On 5 October 2019 at 9am in the South Park (in front of the pigeon monument) in Sofia, Civic Association Alzheimer Bulgaria and Foundation Compassion Alzheimer Bulgaria will participate with a common cause in the regular 5km run, organised every Saturday by 5kmrun.

Our message on the occasion of World Alzheimer's Day (21 September) is "Health promotion and disease prevention through sport", and the date is followed by another two days dedicated by the international community to the promotion of physical and mental health of the elderly people - the International Day of Older Persons (1 October) and World Mental Health Day (10 October).

Sport has a proven beneficial effect on our mental and physical health. Keeping a healthy lifestyle and playing sports regularly reduces the risks of various forms of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Globally, scientists are still unable to find a cure for the various forms of dementia and Alzheimer's, but prevention can slow or even prevent the disease.

After initial registration on the site http://www.5kmrun.bg/reg_form.php, everybody can participate throughout the year and free of charge (every Saturday) in their free runs in the park.

Run with us on 5 October, so that we Run away from dementia together.
