By joining Team Alzheimer's Society, you'll be part of the movement to help end dementia.

Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted in their community.

For instance, £100 could fund one of our National Dementia Helpline advisers to provide 7 hours of emotional support, personal advice and vital information to people affected by 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 
  • access to a Facebook group where you can chat to other runners
  • support from our dedicated events team to help you smash your fundraising target
