Ealing Half Marathon organisers hold regular Mile Series events and are making the  Mile event this Saturday free for all runners, asking instead that everyone makes a donation to Alzheimer’s Society.

Ruth, a well-known Ambassador of Alzheimer’s Society, will join runners this Saturday at 11am in Lammas Park, Ealing and is encouraging local people to come and join in.

Ruth said: “I am not known for my ability to run but this is the best reason I know to get my trainers on!  The work the Alzheimer’s Society does in raising awareness about dementia is incredible. 225,000 will develop dementia this year, that’s one every three minutes.

“The work that the Alzheimer’s Society does in terms of support for families and in terms of research is vital. So please come along, donate and support Dementia Awareness Week.

“I want to thank the Ealing Half Marathon for making Alzheimer’s Society the headline sponsor for the second year and for raising money this Saturday – it really does help to make the difference.
