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.
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 for year 1 was to raise £1 for each of these babies.
The funds raised for RAD Day will provide support for the Race Against Dementia Fellowship Programme that aims to develop the RAD Research Fellows and take them to an F1 level of collaboration, teamwork and innovation.
RAD Day takes place on 21 January each year. This is Lady Stewart’s birthday as she is the inspiration behind Race Against Dementia.
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!
