Curious about our Race Against Dementia logo? While ‘D’ stands for dementia, there is a deeper story behind it.

Our logo is not just a visual – it is a profound message about our urgent mission to beat dementia. It is like a hidden code, linking racing and the battle against this disease. It reflects the challenges of both racing and the tough journey of those with dementia. The twists and turns within it mirror the confusion felt by those battling dementia, where memories become tangled and lost.

We see our logo as a symbol representing the chaos experienced on the track and by someone with dementia. It embodies the urgency to find a cure, akin to the rush to win a race. The fragmented pattern highlights the intricate complexity of solving dementia.

But our logo is not just for display. It’s a call to action, uniting the brightest minds to accelerate research. It sparks conversations and brings people together to address the impact of dementia.

It also serves as a reminder to push boundaries and speed up progress in the fight against dementia. It carries hope, determination, and a commitment to one day overcome this global challenge.

Ultimately, Race Against Dementia’s logo is not just a symbol; it is a story, a pledge, and a driving force toward finding a cure. It signifies the challenging journeys of both racing and dementia, rallying people worldwide in the race to triumph over this disease.
