Hello. I’m Marge.

I’ve recruited 40 people to walk, jog and run the Great North Run with me in 2019. The aim is to raise £40,000 as a team for Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Why forty by forty?

My step-dad has mixed dementia (Vascular Dementia and Alzheimer’s). Since he was diagnosed, I’ve watched how this horrendous disease can strip away everything that makes ‘you’, you. I’ve seen the impact that it can have on surrounding friends and family.  And I think more needs to be done to work out how to stop it. Oh, and I’m 40 years old in 2019. So I figured recruiting 40 people and raising £40k sounded like a fine plan.

* or more!
