Story

Our wonderful Dad, Nigel, has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and is fighting a brave but frustrating battle with this cruel disease.

Dad completed the very first London Marathon in 1981 in a time of 3hrs 15mins. With zero chance of replicating his time or getting anywhere near (!) all 4 siblings, Sam, Toby, Matt & Ruth, and dad's eldest grandson, Theo, will run the London Marathon 2024 to raise vital funds for Alzheimer's Research UK.

Whether we run together or in healthy competition with each other is yet to be seen but with every step, Dad will be in our hearts, together with the hundreds of thousands living with this awful disease and those caring for them.

The London Marathon 2024 will be the toughest physical challenge of our lives and any donations are very much appreciated.

Sam, Toby, Matt, Ruth & Theo
