We stand for everyone affected by dementia to find a cure


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am celebrating my 70th year by doing a series of running events, one a month for a year.  The races are a mixture of 10K and half marathons plus one full marathon (Edinburgh).  The first one was Windsor Half Marathon in September.  Since then I have completed 7 more events, the last one being the Edinburgh Marathon (my cover picture shows me just approaching the finish line on 26 May).  So still to come are the Frampton 10 K on 1 July, the Two Tunnels Half Marathon in Bath on 14 July, the Dublin Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon on 11 August and the Cotswold Trail Half Marathon on 1 September.  I want to raise money for a charity that I care for, whilst having a lot of fun.  I decided to support Alzheimer's Research because of the number of people that I know - including my mother - who have been affected by some form of dementia in the final years of their lives.
