This year I'll be cycling the Way of the Roses (a 170 mile challenging ride coast to coast) to raise money for research into dementia.
One in three of us has a friend or close family member who is affected by dementia. Yet, it receives only about 1/12th of the research funding devoted to cancer. My target is to raise £1,000 to support The University of Nottingham's target of £350,000 to enable them to use their Nobel Prize winning expertise in MRI scanning to conduct world-leading research into the different ways that dementia damages brain cells.
Your support will pave the way to earlier diagnosis and better treatment.
