We are united to create a world without dementia.

Charity Registration No. 296645


Over the last two years I have witnessed the suffering and passing of both my Nan & Granddad due to this terrible disease.  For those that know me, they know that calling them Nan & Granddad doesn't do them justice, as for most of my life they brought me up.  I am extremely grateful for everything they have given me. For taking on the job of being my 'Mum & Dad'.

As a way of remembering them and saying thank you for all the sacrifices they made, I will be undertaking 12-months of extreme(ish) crazy(ish) challenges.  My aim is to raise as much money as possible to help the continued research and treatment of Dementia.  Over the next 12-months I will be undertaking:

January: Tough Guy (

February: The Beast

March: The Battle of Lansdown (

April: My Jiu-Jitsu Challenge - 1000 throws in 5 Hours

May: Tough Mudder 5k & 100km Canoe trip in Scotland (ok, I admit, I love doing this one!  But we did nearly drown one year #Grandtully)

June: Rough Runner - 15k

July: Climbing Ben Nevis

August; My 6 year old son will be climbing Snowdon (with me!)

September: Tough Mudder Full

October: Hellrunner: Hell up North

November: Hellrunner: Nightfall - The aim is to do 20 miles through the day and night (12noon to 8pm) through swamp, forest, hill, river, obstacles and mud (and the cold of winter!)

December: My Black Belt Grading (hopefully!)

Followed by a year of therapy and physio!!

Any donation will be greatly appreciated - thank you
