Jacinda Norman works at the Nag's Head Hotel, Adamstown. She is also a passionate advocate for dementia support and research.
On Sunday, 31 March Dementia Australia will hold its annual Memory Walk and Jog to promote an active lifestyle and to raise money for dementia support services.
It is a fundraiser both Jacinda and the Nag's Head Hotel will be supporting.
"Jacinda has been with us for about 18 months now. She is an amazing member of our team and sadly her father has been diagnosed with early onset dementia," Hotel manager Adam Rummery said.
"So for the next six weeks, to show our support for Jacinda, all our Friday raffle money will be going toward her fundraising efforts with the hope of raising more than $2,000."
According to Dementia Australia, every three seconds someone is diagnosed with the condition. At present there is estimated to be more than 436, 366 Australians living with dementia, which is the second leading cause of death in our country. And there is no cure.

"I have some personal experience with the condition within my family as well," Adam said.
"And on this occasion, we really want to support Jacinda because she is just one of those people who will always go above and beyond. She loves our locals. She will always come in when someone's not available, and she is a highly valued member of our team."
