Neurolab raises over £900 for Alzheimer’s Research UK
During Summer 2020, Stephanie Rossit, Helen Morse, Annie Warman, and Alex Mitchell put on their trainers and ran, jogged and walked to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Inspired by the lab’s recent work with people with Alzheimer’s Disease and the devastating effect of the pandemic on funding for charities, the team pledged to run 500km over 10 weeks and raise £500. We smashed our initial target, covering over 800km, and raised a total of £901.83 for vital dementia research.
Well done team and thank you to everyone who donated!
