My story

[p]Hi,[/p][p]In April I will run 26.2 miles through the streets of London. The money you donate will help to power the research required to find an effective treatment to slow, prevent or cure dementia.[/p][p]Dementia is something which has impacted my family for the last 10 years. My mum was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2010 at the age of 70. More recently a close cousin has been diagnosed with early onset Dementia. Those who have the unfortunate experience of watching a loved one suffer through the dementia roller-coaster will understand how utterly heart-breaking it is for the sufferer and those closest to them.[/p][p]Having experienced first-hand the traumatic effect dementia has on sufferers has made me want to run 26.2 miles, so that we can help those living with this devastating condition lead more fulfilling lives. [/p][p]I am fortunate enough to work in a research related role at the University of Birmingham and truly appreciate the impact great research can make. This is what will keep me running and help me to focus on making sure I do you all proud by smashing my fundraising pledge for Dementia Revolution.[/p][p]Your donations are going to help power the dementia revolution which is growing - on the streets and in the laboratories, scientists are gaining on dementia, making discoveries to change lives. Please sponsor me today to support ground-breaking dementia research. [/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I really appreciate your support and any donation you make.[/p][p]Gurmit[/p][p]x[/p][p][br][/p][p]The Dementia Revolution is here. Join us.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the Dementia Revolution charities; Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p][br][/p]
