A revolution is growing
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.
It is time to bring dementia out of the shadows and set things straight.
As Charity of the Year for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK joined forces for a year-long campaign to power groundbreaking dementia research, overthrow old attitudes and lead the charge towards a cure.
Together we are unstoppable
The Dementia Revolution was a unique opportunity to power the most ambitious dementia research endeavour the UK has ever seen – the UK Dementia Research Institute.
Dementia is not a lost cause. It is time to set things straight. That is why we started the Dementia Revolution.
Meet the incredible people who are standing with us to support the Dementia Revolution. Will you join them?
