About Your Team
Hi everyone, Alex, Jamie and I will attempt the three peak challenge on the 22nd of June to help raise money for the charity Alzheimer’s society, which is the biggest in the U.K.
The money won’t just be going towards finding a cure for Alzheimer’s, but also towards caring and supporting friends and family of the patient, as this disease doesn’t just affect the person diagnosed.
Alex, Jamie and I both wanted to raise money for Alzheimer’s for various reasons. Alex’s grandad, Stanley Craig, has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s so it’s very personal for him.
Alex agreed with me that we are scared of the disease. I don’t want to think of a life where I grow old with my girlfriend, family and friends but incapable to remember our life’s, hurting our loved ones in the process.
Jamie’s reason is This is dedicated to my Girlfriends Grandmother Jean Pryde who before Alzheimer’s was smart, funny and wonderful inside and out , she was then taken away from us by this horrible disease to become aggressive, unrecognisable and suffered physically and mentally for over 10 years.
This had an enormous impact within the family which was devastating. Overall Alzheimer’s is one of the worst diseases to witness a loved one go through as they are no longer with us but still living.
