Take on a challenge this year to raise funds for Younger People with Dementia. You can help us to provide support for families affected by young onset dementia in our community!

Whether you run a marathon, cycle until your legs feel like jelly or trek up a mountain, you can take on a challenge and fundraise for families facing dementia.

Each participant fundraising for us will receive:

– A free YPWD running vest.

– A fundraising guide to support you with tips and tricks.

– Support and regular tips & tricks from our Fundraising Lead.

– A follow up certificate and pack from us, just to say thank you.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Amy, our Fundraising Lead, at or give us a call on 0118 207 2880.

We can’t thank our fundraisers enough for making a real difference to the lives of families living with young onset dementia. If you want to join them, sign up today!
