You are hopefully familiar with our local heroes at Alzheimer’s Research UK who are committed to a vision of a world free from dementia. Based in Great Shelford, they are the UK’s leading dementia research charity who support over £17 million of charitable giving toward research seeking prevention, treatment and a cure. On May 22nd, Alzheimer’s Research UK will host their first local fund-raising event — a ten-mile walk which they hope will raise £10,000. In case you’re wondering, £10,000 covers 500 hours of dementia research. If you participate in the dementiaCOMPASS programming, then you are aware of just how important this research is. Hopefully, this walk will bring with it an expanded awareness of the importance of this research and just how far funding lags far behind that of other diseases.
To show our support of Alzheimer’s Research UK and the vision we share, a team of us will walk the ten miles in the name of dementiaCOMPASS. We would love to have your support in our efforts. If you would like to walk with us or donate funds to our team’s fund-raising goal, please contact Edye.
Stay tuned here and we’ll keep you posted on our training and fund-raising efforts along the way.
