Alzheimer’s Society

Why Run For Us?

Dementia isn’t slowing down. Neither can you.

By 2025, there will be 1 million people in the UK living with dementia.

Alzheimer’s Society are the only UK charity who fund research, act as a powerful force for change through campaigning, and give expert advice, guidance and support through the most challenging days for people affected by dementia. We are a safe space to turn when people need us, giving help and hope to everyone living with dementia that there is a brighter future ahead.

But we can’t do it alone, we need your miles, your energy, and your determination. Turn your training runs into life-changing research. Your race-morning nerves into ground-breaking studies. Your finish line thrill into hope for future generations.
