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...

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.

How are you going IndieAl? I've seen so many people suffering from this dreadful disease, along with their families.

RE: Running Down Dementia

I'm a little under halfway on both the running and on the fundraising.

RE: Running Down Dementia

Thank you. I have to admit that it gives me an extra buzz every time I run, knowing what it's for.
