    There is a fantastic letter in our local paper this week from Kevin Whately; mainly asking readers to use their confirmed place on the Great North Run to raise funds for the Society; but also giving an excellent insight into Alzheimer's and how it impacts upon the whole family.
    (He played the part of the son caring for his father in the BBC play "Dad" with Richard briers and Jean Heywood)
    My granddaughter is running that day September 18th. Any other Great North Runners out there ?

    Hi Leah

    My husband and I are taking part in the great north run for the Alzheimer's Society in memory of my Dad. we are not runners so we're planning to 'power walk', as long as we raise money and awareness, that's the main thing.

    Wish your granddaughter good luck from us

    hello!

    Hi,
    My sister and I are running the great north run for the society. Our gran is still in the early stages of dementia but its a challenge already and we wanted to do all we could to help the work of the society. You can see us here: http://www.justgiving.com/helenandkat
    We've never done anything like this before and so we don't expect to be running very fast, but hopefully see you either before or after the race.
    Good Luck!
    Helen
