By joining Team Alzheimer's Society, you'll be part of the movement to help end dementia. One person develops dementia every three minutes and too many face it alone. Your support will help us find a cure and achieve our vision of a world without dementia.

When you run for us, you'll receive:

  • a support pack with fundraising help and materials
  • a free running top to wear on race day
  • detailed training guides for different abilities and personalised support from our experts 
  • support from our dedicated events team to help you smash your fundraising target

We know that fundraising can be just as challenging as the event, but we'll be here to support you every step of the way. When you sign up to run for us, you will receive a support pack with tips and advice to help you with your fundraising, allowing you to make a difference to people living with dementia.

To kick-start your fundraising in the meantime, why not set up a JustGiving page?

You can also print off a sponsorship form to share with friends and family.
