“Together for Alzheimers 5k Fun Run”

On Sunday September 25th, 110 people took part in a 5k Fun Run in Wareham Forest.“Together for Alzheimer’s” is organised by local Personal Trainer Alex Eversden to raise awareness and money for The Alzheimer’s Society.

Alex said “This was the 9thyear for this Fun Run and we had such a good morning under sunshine and clear blue skies, with record numbers taking part! It is always an enjoyable social event as well as providing people of all ages and fitness levels with a challenge.The fastest runner Ross Wayne, who came over the line in 21:02, Lucy Eversden was the first lady to finish in 24:13 and some walkers took just over an hour. This year the course started at Birchwood Tourist Park and was on tracks and trails through the forest; it’s very well organised with marshalls around the course, easy parking and snacks at the end!” So far this year we have raised over £2032  forThe Alzheimer’s Society, who are very active in research, as well as caring for patients and their families and raising awareness of Dementia.”
