My Dad suffers from Alzheimers, I hate the way his memory has been slowly stripped away from him.
Although we tend to think of Alzheimers as an old persons illness. Their are cases of people developing this disease in their forties and fifties.
Earlier this year my granddaughter Abigail, took part in Humberside Police Life Style creating a group called the memory makers, along with two other friends Emily and Katie. They raised money for Alzheimers and their group came second in the challenge.
Inspired by Abigail, I have been trying to think of a fund raising event. I have studied and taught LFA T'ai Chi for over thirty years. Combining the Guinness book of world records attempted for the longest T'ai Chi Marathon and fund raising for Alzheimer's seemed the perfect solution.
The current world record is held by Michael Van Zweeden from Australia (26 hours).
The Guinness Book of World Records is recognised internationally. It is my hope to fund raise on an international scale.
It is also my aim to bring the World Record to Hull. The City of Culture 2017.
The event will take place on Monday 12th, Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th of June.
The venue St. Stephens Shopping Centre Hull
Although I am the one attempting to break the World Record. This is a team effort, I cannot do it without a support team to help me.
Please donate to this very worthwhile cause.
