Running Down Dementia

Virtual event

Organiser's Description

In response to cancelled races in the UK, Alzheimer’s Research UK is launching a virtual Running Down Dementia challenge. Participants are challenged to run, walk or jog as much as they can between 1 April 1 and 31 August. Get sponsored to do it and help us move one step closer to a life-changing dementia treatment. You can push for 100km, challenge yourself to 300km, or simply run the distance that suits you – all abilities are welcome!

Running Down Dementia is a great way to get moving whenever you’re able to over the next few months, and to keep track of your amazing efforts. With every step you take, you’ll help fund major breakthroughs in research, and give hope to the 34 million people affected by dementia. Raise whatever amount you can. If you raise £400 or more, you’ll get a free Running Down Dementia T-shirt to show off your success! So, what are you waiting for?
