My story

[p][u]15/09/21 Update:[/u][/p][p]We did it! It may have been a different course and a different way of starting this year but we both completed the run in one piece. As always great support from all the spectators and volunteers. Thank you to everyone who has donated on our page, as always very much appreciated by us and the Alzheimer's Society. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Hi Everyone[/p][p]Yep, it’s here! Our 21st consecutive Great North Run is fast approaching on Sunday 12th September and this year we’re fundraising for [b]Alzheimer’s Society[/b], as Sean’s family have been dealing with the effects of this type of dementia since his mum’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis in December 2019.[/p][p]There are more than 850,000 people in the UK who have dementia. That number is increasing as people are living longer and there is currently no cure.[/p][p]Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It usually affects people over the age of 65. However there are over 40,000 people under the age of 65 living with early-onset or young-onset dementia.* Symptoms including memory loss, confusion, depression, anxiety, aggression, loss of communication and other behavioural and physical changes eventually lead to the person needing full time care.[/p][p][b]Alzheimer’s Society[/b] is the UK’s leading dementia charity. It campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with all types of dementia.[/p][p]People affected by dementia are now facing the long-lasting effects of the pandemic. Reduced social contact and suspended support services have had a devastating impact.* Please donate and help [b]Alzheimer’s Society[/b] continue to be there for them and find a cure.[/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is 100% not for profit. Your donations will be quickly processed and passed to [b]Alzheimer’s Society[/b] and any gift aid will be claimed on the charity's behalf where eligible (if you’re a tax payer that means another 25% goes to the Charity).[/p][p]Thank you once again for your continued generosity no matter how big or small.[/p][p]Sean & Louise xxx[/p][p]* Alzheimer’s Society website[/p][p][br][/p]
