RAD DAY 2023

Saturday 21st January 2023

What is RAD Day?

Race Against Dementia Day is a day dedicated to raising funds to help beat dementia. Everyone can get involved and accelerate change by joining the race.

The aim is to raise £127,000 for Race Against Dementia.
Unless a cure is found, 1 in 3 people born today will die with dementia. That is the equivalent of 127,000 babies born every day – so the goal is to raise £1 for each of these babies.

The funds raised for RAD Day will provide support for the Race Against Dementia Fellows’ Leadership Programme that aims to develop the RAD Research Fellows’ skills and take them to an F1 level of collaboration, teamwork and innovation.


When is RAD Day?

RAD Day will take place on 21 January 2023 which is Lady Stewart’s birthday, who is the inspiration behind Race Against Dementia.


How can I get involved in RAD Day?

Simply do “3” your way. This can be a 3k run, scoot, walk, or 3k minutes = 50 minutes racing, star jumping, skipping, or play 3k notes on an instrument, tell 3k jokes, play 3k minutes of board games, make 3 cakes and sell them for donations – your “3”, your way!
