About this Event

What is Lap the Gart?

Lap the Gart is a fun walk/ jog event for NHS staff and their families, held on Gartnavel campus, as part of Dementia Awareness week. In 2018, the inaugural Lap the Gart event saw over 150 participants complete a loop of the site as many times as they wanted to! This year, the event will be a set 5km distance, however you can still go at your own pace, walk or run and enjoy what promises to be a fun and relaxed environment.

Why during Dementia Awareness Week?

The 3rd-10th June is Dementia Awareness week in Scotland. A theme for the campaign is ‘making sure no one faces dementia alone.’ Physical activity can be a great way to meet people and prevent loneliness and we know that leading a physically active lifestyle can have a significant impact on the well being of people with dementia. Therefore, we thought a great way to mark the campaign would be holding an event supporting NHSGGC staff to practice what they preach, getting together and getting active!

How do I get involved?

You can join this FREE even by simply completing the registration form for you and any family members you would like to bring along. Please read the instructions carefully. If you have any questions you can email us at LapTheGart@ggc.scot.nhs.uk

We hope to see you in June!
