GIANTS netball player and newest Alzheimer’s Australia NSW ambassador Sam Poolman will join thousands of locals at the starting line for this year’s Hunter Memory Walk & Jog event later this month.

A local to the Hunter region, Sam will participate at the event in honour of her grandfather Gordon, who passed away having lived with Alzheimer’s disease.

“Seeing first hand the effect that Alzhiemer's disease had on both my Grandad and my family is something l wouldn't wish upon anyone,” Sam said.
