We're a team of 40 runners raising £40,000 for Alzheimer's Research UK at the Great North Run 2019. And back to finish the job in 2020 (virtually!).

At £24 billion each year, dementia costs the UK economy more than cancer and heart disease combined, but over two thirds of the care for dementia patients is paid for by themselves or their family.

Most of us know someone living with dementia – today there’s over 850,000 people diagnosed in the UK, but this is predicted to reach 2 million by 2051.

All money raised by our team of forty will go directly to Alzheimer’s Research – funding research into many different types of dementia.

Alzheimer’s Research UK receive no government funding for their research and are completely dependent on supporters to fund their research programme.

Here's what your donation means in real terms:

£20 raised pays for 1 hour of pioneering dementia research

£100 raised could provide the tools for scientists to map 10,000 genes in minute detail, identifying targets for the development of new treatments

£500 raised will cover the cost of a sensitive brain scan for a patient involved in a research study, tracking the effectiveness of new drug treatments, improving diagnosis and better understanding how diseases like Alzheimer’s wreak their havoc in the brain

£1000 raised will pay for reagents, unique chemicals that are crucial for successfully growing cells in a laboratory ready for disease study

£2500 raised will allow researchers to buy synthetically made amyloid, to better understand this hallmark Alzheimer’s protein in the lab.

Here's the small print:

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
