Here, Admiral Nurse Lindsay White tells us why she ran the Brighton Marathon to raise funds for Dementia UK.
It is estimated that on the Isle of Wight, where I work, there are 3,000 people living with dementia. When my family heard I was taking on the Brighton Marathon they thought I was crazy, but then they know how much being able to raise funds for Dementia UK means to me.
