Support this fundraiser by connecting a new fundraiser to it. All donations will be assigned to the top level fundraiser.

I'll be running from the Dam in Amsterdam to the Dam in Zaandam (16km) on September 18 - with the aim of beating my time last year and raising a bit of cash for a very good cause!

Donations will go to the VU Academic Medical Center to support their research into Alzheimer prevention and early detection among young adults.

Around 1 in 9 people over the age of 65 have Alzheimer or other form of dementia. And 1 in 3 over the age of 65 die as a result of dementia.

Many people will have already experienced a family member with dementia and seen the strain that this not only puts on the person suffering from the disease but also their support network.

A small contribution today could put an end to this suffering for everyone over the coming years.

Thanks in advance for your help!
