Why should I take on this challenge?

By signing up using your own event places, you’re saving Alzheimer’s Research UK the cost of your place, meaning the money you raise will go further in funding dementia research. There will be no minimum sponsorship requirement, we will be hugely grateful for anything you are able to raise, and we will of course be here to support you every step of the way and provide you with all the fundraising ideas/materials you may need.

For every £1 donated in 2021/22, 73p powered our life-changing research and helped people to understand and take action on dementia. The remaining 27p helped raise our next £1 and fund essential running costs.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact the Sporting Events team.
