Scott’s wife, Dame Barbara Windsor, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease four years ago. After going public with the news in May, Scott and Barbara are determined to use their experience to raise awareness of all forms of dementia and address the stigma surrounding the condition.

My hope for research is that we can give people more time with their families and friends.

Amanda is a researcher working in the UK Dementia Research Institute at University College London. Her work focuses on discovering biomarkers, fingerprints found in blood and spinal fluid that could help researchers to differentiate between diseases and track whether new treatments are working.

Amanda says finding out that she’ll be running beside some of the people who donate samples for her research makes her feel “a bit star-struck” as “they are the real heroes”.

Supporting the Dementia Revolution is a family affair for Carli and her cousins, Tom and Jack Bradshaw.

Their grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when she was just 48. After Carli's mum was diagnosed with the disease in her early fifties, doctors discovered that the family carries a rare inherited gene that means Carli, Jack and Tom have a 50% chance of developing early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.  

Carli, who is already involved in dementia research, hopes that by joining the Dementia Revolution she can lead the charge towards a cure.

Having witnessed the destructive effects of the disease after both their nan and then their mum (who is the sister of Carli's mum) were diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s, brothers Tom and Jack hope that research will put an end to this cruel disease once and for all.

I hope that the Dementia Revolution will increase understanding that dementia doesn’t only affect older people. I don’t think many people know that.

Mark, winner of The Apprentice 2014 and business partner to Lord Alan Sugar, says that in business nothing scares him. But dementia does.

Mark is determined to play his part in raising urgently-needed funds to power dementia research – his way of standing beside his grandfather in Australia who is living with Alzheimer’s disease.
