Alzheimer's Society
Alzheimer's Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. In 2015 there will be 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to 1 million by 2025. The Society's fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms. Through our network of local services, we touch the lives of over 30,000 people every week, providing practical services and support for people with dementia and their carers. The Society provides information and support to people with any form of dementia and their carers through our publications, National Dementia Helpline, website and more than 2,000 local services throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We support health and social care professionals by delivering high quality education, resources and training. We influence politicians and policy-makers, and campaign for better quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers and greater understanding of dementia. We also fund innovative research in the areas of cause, cure, care and prevention. We work with scientists and people affected by dementia to ensure that the medical and social research programmes we fund have a positive impact on people's lives.

I did it!

My legs ache and I can't walk up or down stairs but I completed the London Marathon in five hours and one minute.
At times the crowd lining the route was so unbelievably loud. Their support really helped to keep me going despite the heat. I powered through and even managed a 200m sprint finish.
The London Marathon experience was incredible. I can't even describe what it's like to have thousands of people cheer you on to keep going.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored me. Your support has been really appreciated. The knowledge that I was raising money for such a worthy cause kept me going.


Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Running the London Marathon will be the toughest physical and mental challenge I will ever put myself through. So far I have trained through rain, hail, gale force winds and sunshine. My feet ache and I will probably lose at least one toenail.

BUT what will keep me going is the fact I have to complete it for a very worthy cause, the Alzheimer's Society. Money you donate will help the charity fund vital research as well as support for those affected by dementia.

And if you want to cheer me on on the day, please do. I'll need all the help I can get!

Thank you for your support. x
