I am a 24 year old welsh girl who has developed an enjoyment for running over the past few years. I've ran the race for life for the past 2 years completing 5 and then 10k and I'm now looking to challenge myself further with the great north run and to raise as much money as possible for dementia UK.
This money will go towards the care and support of dementia patients. I have seen first hand how good care and and support of these patients can make it so much more pleasant for patients and their families. I never expected this to happen to my grandmother, to our family. For my grandmother to no longer recognise me from one week to the next. However the support that my grandmother and our family have received and the effort that has been made to provide patients such as my grandmother with activities such as singing and crafts reassures us that she's being looked after and is in the best place and care. All of the money raised from the sponsorship for my great north run will go towards continuing the excellent work that dementia UK does for those with and those affected by dementia.
