Running Down Dementia

Hello all.
I thought I'd let you know that I've taken up the Running Down Dementia challenge. The aim is to run 100km over the summer and raise £100 sponsorship for Alzheimer's Research UK.
There have been great strides made in treating AIDS and many types of cancer. Dementia is set to be the biggest killer this century.
You can monitor my progress and even sponsor me at: https://runningdowndementia2017.everydayhero.com...

What I Read

RE: Running Down Dementia

Well done! As someone who knows the impact of Alzheimer's on a family member, I think it's high time research is properly funded. Until then, people like you are doing a great job.
