My story

Dementia is such a sad illness and one that is close to me & my family. My Grandad was diagnosed with Dementia at 64- I was only 6 years old, as I have got older, I've realised the impact this horrible illness has had on everyone. His world is slowly becoming smaller but the love we have for him is bigger than ever. I'm proud of him everyday. I know 2 miles may not seem much, but to me it is and i wanted to keep it realistic in order to do the whole of December (31 days). I suffer with mental health myself and have found this year particularly challenging . I thought to end the year with this personal challenge and raise funds for dementia was a win win. I'll be telling my Grandad all about it, so if you can donate anything at all that would be amazing!

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.
