My story

[p]I've joined the Dementia Revolution; the official Charity Team of the Virgin Money London Marathon 2019. [/p][p]As most of you know my dear Dad lost his fight to vascular dementia in March 2018. Seeing the devasting effect this awful disease had on Dad and us, his family I would love to raise as much money as possible in the hope that one day there will be a cure.[/p][p]Dad was a very proud, dignified man, so it was awful seeing him robbed of this and his unhappiness and frustration towards the end.[/p][p]I will appreciate any donation, no matter how much or little. It will all help to keep me going to the finish line! So thank you in advance.[/p][p]In April I will run 26.2 miles through the streets of London; because research can end dementia and taking on this challenge for the Dementia Revolution is a unique opportunity to power the most ambitious dementia research endeavour the UK has ever seen.[/p][p]Dementia is the biggest health threat facing society and there are currently no effective treatments to slow, prevent or cure it. [/p][p]But a revolution is growing - on the streets and in the laboratories. Scientists are gaining on dementia, making discoveries to change lives. But they can't do it alone. We must bring dementia out of the shadows, so that people living with this devastating condition can lead more fulfilling lives. [/p][p]Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK are joining forces for a year-long campaign to power ground-breaking dementia research, overthrow old attitudes and lead the charge towards a cure. [/p][p]We all must make a stand; sponsor me today to support ground-breaking dementia research. [/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]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
