Alzheimer's Research UK

We fund world-class scientific research to defeat dementia

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Myself, Andrew and Lea wanted to do a challenge which is quite out of our comfort zone, but achievable after quite a bit of training and to raise money for a good cause.

We will be cycling the Avenue Verte which is a cycle route between London and Paris. According to Google the shortest route is approximately 175 miles, I'm sure after we've taken a few wrong turns this will end up being quite a bit more..

Dementia affects over 850,000 people in the UK and numbers are increasing

·         Around 36% of the UK population know a close friend or family member with dementia

·         At £23.6 billion each year, dementia costs the UK economy more than cancer and heart disease combined  

·         £20 could fund one hour of vital research

·         £50 could provide access to specialist equipment for studying cells

·         £120 could support complex protein analysis

·         £300 could pay for a genetic test to help identify risk genes
