From pom poms to orange wigs, we're taking out dementia in style!

Every year hundreds of amazing people cycle, run, trek and swim miles with #TeamARUK, raising vital funds to make breakthroughs possible. But we need your help.

When the going gets tough for #TeamARUK, and the final mile seems a long way off, we cheer our incredible supporters on and give them that extra push they need to get across the finish line!

Will you join us?

  • Looking out for #TeamARUK on the course
  • Cheering throughout the event, with an extra special cheer for #TeamARUK participants!
  • Distributing merchandise
  • Setup and takedown of flags and banners
  • Assisting with the recruitment of volunteers on the day
  • Liaising with Alzheimer’s Research UK staff
