Running Down Dementia

Running Down Dementia will be back in 2021!

Thank you to everyone who took part in Running Down Dementia 2020! It was an incredible challenge and we can't wait to bring it back in April 2021.

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.
