Dementia is a cause which is particularly close to the hearts of the Barry’s team and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society, particularly as the charity moves into its “Dementia Revolution” campaign

What is the Dementia Revolution?

Already announced as ‘Charity of the Year’ for the 2019 Virgin Money London Mararthon, Alzheimer’s Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society have joined forces to launch the Dementia Revolution. A year-long campaign with the aim of raising £3.5m that will go towards the fight against dementia.

There is close to one million people in the UK alone living with dementia right now. Over 50 million in the world.

You don’t have to personally run the marathon to get involved; you can donate, raise money, volunteer and even help to spread the message.
