We stand for everyone affected by dementia to find a cure


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

To help support Alzheimer's Research UK, the Scotland Network is going to take part in a fundraising challenge to coincide with Dementia Action Week (17th-23rd May)The ARUK Scotland Network is a group of research scientists based at Scottish Universities who are dedicated in finding a cure for Alzheimer's disease and dementia (

Our challenge is called ‘Run the Network’ and our aim is to accumulatively virtually run (or walk, cycle, or any other form of exercise!) the distance between all the Universities in our Network as a group. 

Our route is 813 km (just over 500 miles!), starting at the University of Dundee, going up the coast to Aberdeen, across to the University of the Highlands and Islands in Inverness, taking the scenic route down to Glasgow to say hello to our colleagues at Glasgow Caledonian University, University of Strathclyde and the University of Glasgow via the University of Stirling, across the central belt to Edinburgh to see everyone at Napier, Heriot Watt, The University of Edinburgh and Queen Margaret University, before heading into Fife to St Andrews University, and the final stretch back to the University of Dundee to complete the challenge.
