Running Down Dementia

Every day, almost 600 people develop dementia in the UK – and, right now, there’s no cure. But we’re on a mission to change this. And with your help, we will.

Run, walk or jog as much as you can between 1 April and 31 August, get sponsored to do it and help us move one step closer to a life-changing dementia treatment. You can push for 100km, challenge yourself to 300km, or simply run the distance that suits you – all abilities are welcome! 

Together, we can help stop dementia in its tracks. So, pull on your trainers, and get going!
