2. The countdown is on!

<Weeks/months until your event> today I’ll be taking on <event name>. I’ve got lots of training ahead of me, but your donations will make all the hard work worth it. I’m doing this for Alzheimer’s Society, the UK’s leading dementia research charity. If you’d like to sponsor me I’d be so incredibly grateful <fundraising page>.

Been meaning to donate to my fundraising page but not got round to it? Never fear, there’s still plenty of time! Pounds or pennies, it’ll all help me achieve my fundraising goal and ensure Alzheimer’s Society can be there for the thousands of people living with dementia in the UK. You can sponsor me here: <fundraising page>.
