A three-day "Don't Forget Us" walkathon to benefit Melabev, which assists people suffering from dementia, will begin at the Sde Boker Field School on December 5. Participants will meet in Jerusalem in the late afternoon on Tuesday, December 5, and be bused to the Negev for a three-hour moonlight walk. On Wednesday and Thursday, there are full- or half-day walks, concluding with a barbecue dinner on the way back to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv. Melabev operates nine day centers for elderly victims of cognitive and memory impairments, especially Alzheimer's disease, serving over 300 families. The goal of the 2006 walkathon is to fund a therapeutic garden in Jerusalem. Walkers and sponsors are now being recruited. For information, call (02) 655-5826 or check www.melabev.org.
