Simply Health Great North Run 2019 Dementia Matters Great North Run team 2019! This year we have been overwhelmed by the support for our Great North Run efforts. Our team is in place and we are ready to hit that start line but you can still help support us all in the following ways: Have your own place and still want to run for us? Just go here and set up a Dementia Matters fundraising page Donate directly to the cause Come on the day and support our runners over the line. (we will have a gathering after the race to celebrate the achievements of everyone) My Grandad has suffered with Dementia for around 15 years now and it’s very difficult to watch someone you love deteriorate and feel like you are unable to help. A few days after the Great North Run 2018 an advert popped up on my Facebook page inviting me to participate in the Great North Run 2019 on behalf of Dementia Matters. I thought this would be a great way of feeling like I was able to do something to help raise funds to support people who suffer with this condition. I am really looking forward to preparing for this half marathon with the help and support of Dementia Matters.
