Dementia is the leading cause of death in the UK. Currently, no-one survives dementia. It’s been 117 years since Alzheimer’s disease was first discovered. In that time, we’ve travelled to the moon, cured 50% of cancers and a diagnosis of HIV is no longer a death sentence – yet we still have no cure for dementia.
Help raise vital funds for Alzheimer's UK by taking on their popular firewalk challenge, taking place on 30 October in Finsbury Avenue Square. The experience will push your boundaries, challenge your perceptions and will make for an unforgettable evening. After receiving training from one of the UK's leading fire walking experts, you'll make your way along a path of hot coals at temperatures of 648C in the name of raising money to support people affected by dementia. The walk is organised by UK Firewalk, the leading Firewalk organises in the UK and the team from Alzheimer's Society will be there to cheer you on. By signing up, you will receive support from their dedicated team to help you smash your fundraising target and a free t-shirt to wear on the day.
Registration costs £25, and the charity asks that a minimum of £150 is raised from your challenge.
