Story

24 MILES COMPLETED!

Thank you everyone for all your support and messages - they really kept me going especially through the night.

Thank you for donating to this charity that is so close to my heart. Off to bed now! Thank you all Roisin x

My Grandad Freddie (who is 90) suffers with Alzheimer's Disease. Until Grandad Freddy was diagnosed with Alzheimer's I had little idea about what the disease was. I did not know that the risk of Alzheimer's disease increases with age and that it is estimated that 1 person in 14 over the age of 65 will be affected by the disease- that means that 2 people in my form will develop this awful disease.

I am running a mile every hour for 24 hours on 31st March 2021 -1st April 2021  to:

1. Raise awareness of this disease

2. Raise funds for the Alzheimer's Charity as sufferers and their families are struggling more than ever because of Coronavirus

3. Make my Grandad proud- he was a runner back in the day

We are united to create a world without dementia. Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without the fear of prejudice.
