Dementia is the biggest health threat facing society. As Charity of the Year for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK are joining forces to lead the charge towards a cure.

Charity Registration No. 296645 & 1077089

Story

Dementia is the biggest health threat facing society today and there are no effective treatments to slow, prevent, or cure it. Almost a million people in the UK are currently living with some form of dementia, with Alzheimer’s disease the most common. Numbers are estimated to rise to over 1 million by 2025 and will soar to 2 million by 2051.

Sadly, 1 in 3 of us will be affected by dementia in some way and 225,000 people will develop dementia this year alone - that’s one person every three minutes.

As charity of the year for 2019, Virgin Money London Marathon, Alzheimer’s Society, and Alzheimer’s Research UK are joining forces for a one-year campaign, Dementia Revolution, to make a stand against dementia and power ground-breaking research. 

To be able to advocate and run the London Marathon for Dementia Revolution is a privilege. All money raised will go to towards ground-breaking research and help scientists lead the charge to finding a cure.

Dementia research is desperately underfunded so if you would like to make a difference to those affected by dementia please feel free to donate, any contribution will make a difference.

If you do donate, please do add a song to the message so I can add it to my running playlist 😊

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you for donating.
