Development Course 2022 – Dementia UK

As part of the 2022 Development Course, we (Tom from Wedgnock Depot) and (Reece from Litchfield Depot) have chosen to team up together and raise money for Dementia UK.

After discussing our ideas on how to raise money, we both quickly agreed that we wanted push ourselves with something challenging. We (bravely) decided that we would run 5km a day for 30 days in September. Who doesn’t love a challenge, right? Neither of us are currently fit enough to take on this challenge. However, our sights are set and our heads our high! So, we’ve given ourselves 8 months to train whilst we raise as much money as possible for our chosen charity.

Dementia UK was our chosen charity because it was quite close to home for the both of us and we hope that the money we raise will help to make a difference. So, we ask you, whilst we build our stamina and fitness to take on this challenge to help us achieve our goal by raising money for Dementia UK. It’s all for a worthy cause, we assure you.

We will be starting our runs on the 1st September 2022, and will be uploading our runs everyday via the Strava app (which uses GPS to tracks distances) to our just giving page.

For more information about our chosen charity or to donate please visit our page below. We would greatly appreciate donations of any size. Everything helps!

We’re also hosting raffles for signed sports Memorabilia. Every entry will go towards our charity raising for Dementia UK. So, if you’re interested in what we have to offer please drop either of us an email.
