Team story

[p]Hi there,[/p][p]We are running the 2018 Royal Parks Half-Marathon for Arts 4 Dementia and would dearly appreciate your donation, big or small - just like this team![/p][p]It's becoming more and more common to know someone with dementia and people affected by it. We have loved ones grappling with it (who are absolute heroes, by the way), and the arts prove to be an important resource to process, distract from and further understand this journey. [/p][p]Arts 4 Dementia believe that people living with dementia and their carers have the right to enjoy life to the full. Participating in arts activity, rekindling and learning new artistic skills enables them to bypass dementia symptoms and enjoy new creative experiences together.[/p][p]On October 14th, we will be coming together to laugh, cheer, sweat (mainly sweat) and defeat a half marathon in aid of defeating dementia. [/p][p]But before we do that, we need to smash this target! Your donation buys you the privilege of coming to scream at us whilst eating a picnic in one of the most beautiful half marathon routes you'll ever see, and we'd love to see you there and kiss you as we go past (seriously, Matt's reaction to endorphins is remarkable). Our privilege will be to complete the route for you and loved ones everywhere.[/p][p]We've been fortunate enough to experience the benefits of the arts and care passionately about the care provided to people living with dementia. [/p][p]Love and thanks,[/p][p]Matt, Brendan & Paddy[/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]
