Walk For A Cure with Alzheimer’s Research UK

Join Alzheimer’s Research UK this summer at Walk For A Cure - a series of 5km fundraising walks. Taking place across the UK, these family-friendly, accessible events will bring together everyone impacted by dementia.

Following the success of the inaugural series of events in 2023, these events are back for 2024 with six scenic routes. Your nearest walk is taking place on Sunday 21 July at Pontcanna Fields - a beautiful green parkland in the heart of Cardiff.

Almost one million people are living with dementia in the UK. Tragically, none of them will survive. Alzheimer’s Research UK exists to change that. With the backing of their supporters, the charity will keep going until dementia can no longer destroy lives.  

One walker, who knows just how important dementia research is, is Olive Munro, who is living with vascular dementia. She took part in Walk For A Cure last year and enjoyed it so much she has signed up to do it again!

“The event was fantastic! It was amazing to see so many folks who have been affected by dementia coming together to do something to support research.

“I know that developments in dementia research are likely to come too late for me, but I’m determined to do what I can to help scientists find a cure so future generations will not be affected.

“I have six grandchildren and I hope that in their lifetime dementia will become something that people no longer need to worry about. But this will not happen without funding research. That is why I took part in Walk For A Cure.”

You too can make a difference by joining forces with hundreds of others walking to help find a cure for dementia. Sign up here:
