My story

[p]On the 27th April I will be running 53 miles on the West Highland Way on the 28th April I will be on the start line of the London Marathon. Not sure how my legs will feel at the thought of another 26.2 miles after The Fling, or the planned dash to the airport for the last plane but I will cross the finish line and collect my medal and Tshirt. [/p][p][b]More importantly[/b] I will have raised funds which are vital to 2 charities for a disease which touches almost every family in the country.[/p][p]Dementia Revolution aims to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society.[/p][p] Dementia is one of the biggest health threats facing society today and there are currently no effective treatments to slow, prevent or cure it. Today almost one million people in the UK are living with a form of dementia, the most common one being Alzheimer’s disease. Sadly, one in three of us will be affected by Dementia in some way.[/p][p] Today, 50 million people are living with Dementia across the world. Too often they struggle alone, feeling as though their world has been turned upside down and often facing prejudice or misunderstanding.[/p][p] As Charity of the Year for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, 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]To find out more about where the money raised goes, why not visit [url=https://dementiarevolution.org/who-we-are/where-your-money-goes]https://dementiarevolution.org/who-we-are/where-your-money-goes[/url][/p][p] I’d like to thank you in advance, whether that’s making a donations here, buying team on a football card or eating a cake at one of my many bake sales in work, I really do appreciate it.[/p][p][b][u]Update February'19[/u][/b][/p][p]I have completed more than 200 miles this year so far and hope to hit the 300 mark before end of February. The increased training on previous years will hopefully make a difference, hopefully you'll be able to support me in my efforts by pressing the [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/UltradaftyAndy]clicking here[/url].[/p][p][b][u]Update January'19[/u][/b][/p][p]My training has been stepped up a bit now Christmas and New Year is over, Its time to get serious and get the miles in the legs, New years day was spent on Conic Hill (photo attached) with amazing views. I've also started collecting for raffle prizes which will be drawn before the race (more details on this later).[/p][p][br][/p][p] Thank you[/p][p] Andy[/p][p] [/p]
