My story

[p]Over the course of the last 12 months, my life has been effected by Alzheimers as my Dad was diagnosed with one form of it.[/p][p]This has had a knock on effect to not just my own life, but to that for my Mother & Brother (and his family) and for the most part, not in a good way.[/p][p]I have chosen to raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society by running the York Marathon as they have become a charity now involved in my whole families life & I have been made aware of their fantastic work. In addition, they are the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with dementia today.[/p][p][b]Dementia is the UK's biggest killer. Someone develops it every three minutes and there's currently no cure. SCARY!!!!![/b][/p][p]My aim is to finish the marathon (without the need of any assistance) in under 5hrs, but if I don't I hope you don't mind.[/p][p]Please sponsor me for this cause, which has become very important to me as my Dad fights to onset of the illness and my family deal with the effects it has on him and ourselves. Through Virgin Money Giving your donations will be quickly processed and passed to Alzheimer's Society. In addition, they are a "not for profit" organisation and will claim gift aid on the charity's behalf when you indicate you are eligible, so please don't forget to do this. The extra money means so much![/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read my page and for even considering sponsoring me. I know you will believe this is a fantastic cause!!![/p][p]On behalf of myself, my Dad and all my family I give you a huge virtual hug & a THANK YOU!![/p]
