Story

I will be running 100 miles on 21st July at Catton Park South Derbyshire .My dad is in a dementia care home and this has made me realise the damage dementia causes we need more research to help combat this devastating disease. More than 850,000 people live with dementia in the UK and that number is rapidly rising.

At £24 billion each year, dementia costs the UK economy more than cancer and heart disease combined but over two thirds of the care for patients with dementia is paid for by themselves or their family. 

·         £20 could fund one hour of vital research

·         £50 could provide access to specialist equipment for studying             Cells

·         £120 could support complex protein analysis

·         £300 could pay for a genetic test to help identify risk genes
