On Friday night Diogo, Sandro & Jon from Resident® challenged themselves to take part in the Snowdon Midnight Trek in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.
Sadly a colleague’s Aunt was diagnosed with the condition back in 2015, the progress of the disease is apparent and distressing for all the family, so this charity is extremely close to her heart.
Snowdon is the highest mountain in England and Wales, at 1085m high. They followed the Llanberis Path to the summit, a 9-mile trek, completing the task in 4 hours 40 minutes.
Dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease or a series of strokes. Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse. Currently there are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK.
The Alzheimer’s Society provides information and support, fund medical and social research, and campaign for better quality of life for people with dementia and greater understanding of the condition.
The team have held various fund raising events so far throughout the year and are so close to achieving their target of £2,000. We would be so grateful if you would visit our JustGiving page to help them to raise the rest of the target money for this amazing charity – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Alexandre-Boyes1
