From a thrilling skydive to a gentle 5k run or a gruelling Iron Man, there are fundraising challenges to suit all ages and levels of fitness. It may be something you have always wanted to do or it may be something you want to do to help you get fit. Why not put a team together with friends or do the challenge as a family? The money that you raise will help us to support people who are living with dementia in their own homes, providing them with inspirational day clubs, at home support services and a range of activity groups. Go you!

Once you have signed up for your challenge, let us know so we can give you an Alzheimer's Support T-shirt and sponsorship forms. We can also help with fundraising and promoting your event.

You can start your own fundraising page here on our site, which you can share with friends and family. This works like a JustGiving page - the only difference is that all the funds pledged come direct to us so we don't lose any money in fees. Create your own fundraising page.

If you want more ideas, we have links with organisations who run events such as abseils, ultra walks, and zipslides. Get in touch for more details on how you can get involved.

And remember to include us in the social media posts about your event @AlzheimersSupp (Twitter) and AlzheimersSupportWiltshire (Facebook).
