Catch stalls for World Alzheimer's Month (and win!)

September is World Alzheimer's Month - aimed at raising awareness of this disease worldwide & encourage the search for a cure.

We have a record number of events planned for the entire month, including an Austrian catchathon on World Alzheimer's Day (21/9)! More details below & in the coming weeks, but first and foremost... We're running a competition on social media for all our followers & dedicated stall catchers!

Catch stalls, post evidence on social media & win a T-shirt!

World Alzheimer's Month invites everyone to talk about & act to fight dementia, and show it off to the world. We invite you to do the same!

Play Stall Catchers throughout the month, and take photos & videos as evidence! Post them on social media with the hashtags #WorldAlzMonth & #StallCatchers (or send them to us) and invite friends to like & share them!

At the end of the month, we'll select the catchers with the most likes & shares on their catching posts - that catcher will win a super cool Stall Catchers T-shirt!

What are you waiting for?! 😜 head to Stall Catchers & snap some good catching moments right now!
