My story

As many will know my dad suffers from early onset Alzheimer's. I really wanted to do something to support Dementia Forward the charity that has been supporting them so brilliantly. So I am taking on a challenge that I never thought possible and running my first Marathon in April at Manchester. Any support would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Dementia Forward.
