Around the World Running Challenge

The 25th February 2019 marks 5 years from the date of the first participant joining the PREVENT Dementia Research Programme. To highlight this landmark anniversary, we are launching our most ambitious fundraising challenge yet.

Together, we will run around the world to PREVENT dementia.

From February 2019 to February 2020, between us, we will cover a combined distance of 40,075km. The equivalent to running all the way around the equator of the earth.

For this we will need your help. Regular exercise that gets your heart beating faster is one of the most effective ways that you can look after your brain health. We are asking you – along with your friends, family and colleagues, to join our running team and contribute towards our grand total of 40,075km. From a light jog around the park to an ultra-marathon, every step will build towards our ultimate goal. By adding up the kilometres covered from every individual member of our running team we aim to make it around the world by the end of February 2020. Every penny raised will support the PREVENT Dementia Research Programme.
