Get your running shoes on and do your distance for our specialist dementia nurses.

We’ve seen a huge increase in the need for our support over the past few months. Our Helpline supported 34% more people in 2020 than in 2019 and the need for our vital work supporting families facing dementia is needed now more than ever.

You can help us to continue this vital work. You may simply want to stay fit and active or continue training for a postponed challenge event.

Whatever the reason, join #TeamDementiaUK today.


Families facing dementia need support now more than ever, to help them cope with the double difficulty of both dementia and coronavirus.

Do Your Distance your way by committing to a 10k, half marathon or full marathon – or any distance you choose – over a month of your choice and you’ll help specialist dementia nurses support more families facing dementia.
