going to run 10k in, hopefully, a bloody good time for Alzheimer's Society because Dementia is NOT a natural part of growing old.

Story

You think you've got all the time in the world.

But imagine if you couldn't remember the smaller things in life, the things we take for granted every day. 

Here's my story; 
http://whatthefirst.blogspot.com/2014/05/imagine-if-you-couldnt-remember-reading.html

The number of  people living with dementia in the UK is 800,000, but including the amount of undiagnosed cases this is 821,884.
There are still over 20,000 cases undiagnosed in the UK.
A scary thought!

  • Did you know that £50 million is invested every year into dementia research by government and charities? And did you know that this number is 12 times lower than cancer research, where £590 million is spent per year? 
  • 163,000 new cases of Dementia occur in England & Wales each year; that's 1 every 3.2 minutes! 
Check out the images on my page for some facts about Alzheimer's...
