Event endorsements and testimonials:
"Our 2016 'ADS' Annual Santa Fun Run at Eton Dorney on 11th December, is the Key Event of our busy calendar and represents another great opportunity for you to combine some exercise in a fun way, whilst raising funds for a truly worthwhile cause. Those of you who were involved in previous years will know just how enjoyable this event is and we hope that you spread the word to ensure that you and all of your contacts get into the spirit of this Fun filled day.
Last year's Run was the best so far with 500+ runners/walkers/wheelchair users/prams and doggies participating, raising an amazing £15,000 in the process. This helped us to deliver our range of valuable services so desperately needed by the People living with Dementia, their carers and Families in our Local community. Last years winner came all the way from Spain just to run and show his appreciation for 'ADS' who had previously supported a loved one of his from our area.
Please join in the fun, Enjoy the day and Help us to do more. The 'ADS' Team, our many Volunteers, honoured guests and friends look forward to seeing you there. On behalf of all of us at 'ADS' - thank you." - David Jannetta, Voluntary Chairman & Managing Director of Alzheimers Dementia Support 'ADS'
