My Story

“Tell me and I will forget, Teach me and I will remember, Involve me and I will understand.”
I am a keen marathon runner, having a run a number of a marathons in the last few years although you wouldn’t know it by looking at me as I’m also a keen “socialiser” on the weekends. Every year or so I educate myself on a specific charity or organisation that I don’t have any understanding or familiarity with. And to be honest I have never directly been affected by Alzheimer’s so when this opportunity came about, I researched the diminishing condition and the work that this Society does and of course I got as many people involved as possible. Fundraising is the easy piece as friends and family always are quick to put their hands in their pockets. The most important/difficult part of this challenge is raising awareness of the effects of Alzheimer’s not only on the affected person but also on the family and friends that care for their loved one through those tough times. It will take 4 days to climb the four peaks but Alzheimer’s is a debilitating condition that effects the rest of someone’s life.

Thank You
