Support our Royal Parks Half Marathon team!

Hyde Park, Sunday 14 October 2018

We are delighted to have 21 brave runners taking on the 13.1 mile course through the Royal Parks on Sunday 14 October 2018! This wonderful race, acknowledged by many as the UK’s best Half Marathon, both due to the course through the Royal Parks and past many of London’s classic landmarks, and due to the festival and spectator experience.

How can you help? We’d like to invite you to join us on the day, cheering these fantastic runners on! If you’d like to come, get in touch at admin@arts4dementia.org.uk or on 020 7239 4954. If you can’t make it, visit Virgin Money Giving to see how our team are doing, and to donate.

It will be a wonderful morning, but more importantly, by running, fundraising and cheering, you will be helping to transform the lives of people with dementia and their carers, through the provision of challenging arts workshop programmes for people living with early stage dementia.

About Arts 4 Dementia. A4D develops innovative, person-centred arts programmes to re-energise and inspire people in the early stages of dementia and carers, to help them live better for longer at home. Our website uniquely signposts arts events nationwide for people living with dementia; and we provide early stage dementia awareness training at London arts venues for arts facilitators from all over the country. The 500-plus workshop leaders we have trained to date are delivering arts opportunities to well over 10,000 people living with dementia each year. A4D focuses on what people can achieve – often very much more than they imagine.

The Arts 4 Dementia team will be taking on a 13.1 mile route, passing through Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St James’s Park and Green Park. Runners and supporters have great views of the capital’s landmarks including Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and the Royal Albert Hall.
