Gurmit Kler, Director of Business Engagement has taken on the great challenge of running the London Marathon, on April 28th.
Here, she outlines the reason why you may want to sponsor her :-)
- The run is 26.2 miles!
- The aim is to do it within 4:00- 4:15 hours
- Gurmit has given up alcohol and chocolate since 1st March until the run – this is 2 MONTHS of sacrifice!
- Most importantly Gurmit wants to raise as much as possible for a cause very close to her heart - Dementia Revolution, who are headlining the event this year.

As a timely reminder of the impact dementia can have on families and loved one, the University of Birmingham recently launched a report, in conjunction with Boots, which concludes that national governments, health and social services, businesses, families and communities have to find new ways of responding to the rapidly growing number of people with dementia and of supporting the family and friends who care for them.
