Maxine Power, Haelo’s Chief Executive and Pete Murphy, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust Director of Nursing will be taking on the 26 mile feat on 23 April 2017, for a charity close to their hearts.
They are running in memory of Maxine’s mum, Brenda Dunleavy and in support of Pete’s father in law, Alf. Both of these beautiful people have been afflicted by the terrible effects of Alzheimer’s disease.
The pair, trying to raise £5000 in order to support research into the disease, said:
“Let’s face it, as we all live longer we are all at greater risk of developing some form of dementia. So the more we do to better understand it, the better the chances of either dodging it completely or lessening symptoms for a better quality of life.
“So, go on, you know it makes sense. Please donate and help us to make a difference!”
Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever. Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
