Story

Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever.

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 fear or prejudice.

Having previously hiked 26 miles through the Lake District last June to raise just shy of £1,000, we have our eyes set on some more challenges over the next 8 months. Attention turned to running in early 2023 as complete newbies and have already completed 5km and 10km events. I then completed my 1st Half marathon in September and Yasmine has her 1st Half marathon in November which I will be running with her as well.

I have also committed to the following events to raise further funds

- November 19th Tatton Half-Marathon (Both running)

-April 7th - London Landmarks Half Marathon (Both running)

-April 14th - Manchester Marathon (Mike)

April 21st - South Manchester Triathlon (Mike)

May 26th - Edinburgh Marathon (Mike)

October 6th - Chester Marathon (Mike)

October 13th - Manchester Half-Marathon (Mike & Yasmine)

This is one of the cruellest and most unforgiving illnesses and people affected require on going support. Like so many aggressive illnesses sadly, there is no cure. This is why providing a solid and consistent support framework is SO important. My beautiful Granny Pauline Daphne Scott suffered form this and ultimately passed away in October 2008, and having to witness this first hand was heart-breaking and impacted several members of my family. We would like to contribute in anyway we can, helping to make Dementia easier for any families to face in the future.

I would also like to thank my fellow fundraisers from Nationwide who have all supported with Christmas hampers and a sponsored walk Anna Alberti, Rebecca Gulley, Rich Boraston, Frankie Hall, Valerie Pegler, Sam Gentilcore, Beth Carter, Robbie Thomas, Daniel Morris and Catherine Hamlyn, Gary Phelps, Joanne Hill, Stuart Painting and Luke Cregan

Thank you so much for your support

Mike & Yasmine
