Virgin Money form charity partnership with Dementia Revoloution
Earlier in 2018, Virgin Money announced that they would be working with Dementia Revolution as their corporate charity of the year.
As their charity of the year this makes Dementia Revolution the Charity of the Year for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK are joining forces for a year-long campaign to power groundbreaking dementia research, overthrow old attitudes and lead the charge towards a cure. Dementia is the biggest health threat facing society today and there are currently no effective treatments to slow, prevent or cure it. Today almost one million people in the UK are living with a form of dementia, the most common one being Alzheimer’s disease. Sadly, one in three of us will be affected by dementia in some way. Today, 50 million people are living with dementia across the world. Too often they struggle alone, feeling as though their world has been turned upside down and often facing prejudice or misunderstanding. But no more. A revolution is growing – on the streets and in the laboratories. Scientists are gaining on dementia, pioneering breakthroughs and transforming lives. Colleagues at Virgin Money will be taking part in various fundraising activities with the sole aim of raising both funds and awareness for the Dementia Revolution.
