On Sunday 26th November, at Dorney Lake Eton Dorney, Taplow more than 40 local volunteers will assist the local charity, Alzheimers Dementia Support (‘ADS’) to host its annual fundraising event.
It is hoped that in excess of 500 participants will run or walk the 5km course ensuring that , once again, the event is filled with lots of ‘fun and laughter’. Everyone participating will be dressed in Santa suits (including babes in buggies and dog’s on leads).
The huge efforts made by all runners, walkers and wheelers will hopefully raise much needed funds for the local charity which; “Will be spent, to support the needs of People living with Dementia, their Carers and Families, in our local Communities”, said David Jannetta (the Charity’s Voluntary Chairman).
‘ADS’ is given sponsorship monies and practical support from local businesses, David explained, ‘Without the support and funding given by our Key Sponsor; Mortgage Required and the events’ Main Support Sponsor, Hale and Company the charity would not be in a position to host the fun-filled annual event.
Alzheimers Dementia Support (‘ADS”) currently ‘touches the lives’ of approximately 1,000 people living with Dementia in Windsor, Ascot, Maidenhead, Slough and Langley (and all points in between and surrounding) and depends on the support and monies given.
David explained; ”Organising an event of this size and complexity, requires a huge amount of effort from all concerned, but it is ‘well worth all the planning and preparation involved’ for three key reasons:
- The event raises much-needed funds (to actively support People living with Dementia, their Carers and Families, in our LOCAL community);
- The event provides a ‘fun day out’ for individuals (including those with disabilities) and families (of all ages) in the run-up to the festive season and;
- The event raises awareness of the charity and its work in the local community.
