Join us at the Wizz Air Cardiff Half marathon October edition at the second largest Half Marathon in the UK on a flat and fast course. It’s a fantastic event for both first-time runners and those looking to set a personal best.
You’ll be cheered on by huge crowds, pass iconic buildings in the Welsh capital such as the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff Bay and Penarth Marina, before a grandstand finish in the centre of the city all as part of #TeamDementiaUK. Let us know you have your own place or want to join the team using the buttons below.
Roles vary from making as much noise as possible at a cheer point to making hard-earned cups of tea for runners post event. We’ll provide you with a Dementia UK t-shirt and all you need to bring on the day is your enthusiasm! Please fill in our short volunteer form and we will be in touch with more details.
Every penny you raise from your event will help our dementia specialist Admiral Nurses provide a lifeline to more families facing dementia – and we’re here to support you every step of the way.
Organising another fundraising activity alongside your main challenge will help you smash your goal. Here are some ideas:
host a quiz
arrange a raffle
hold a sweepstake on how long your challenge will take, or the distance you’ll achieve
organise a bake sale at home, at work or in your community
create a sponsored playlist, where supporters donate to add their choice of song
Your fundraising welcome pack
Once you’ve signed up for your challenge, we’ll send you a fundraising welcome pack that’s full of advice on how to meet – and beat – your target.
Setting up a JustGiving page is a great way to fundraise online. Share your link with family, friends and colleagues, and watch the donations roll in.
You can use JustGiving to explain why you’re taking on your challenge for Dementia UK, keep track of how much you’ve raised, and even share your training progress using Strava so your supporters can see how well you’re doing. The more you update and share your JustGiving page, the more donations you’ll receive.
If your supporters are UK taxpayers and their donation is voluntary (not proceeds of a sale), we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated – at no extra cost to them. Make sure they fill in the Gift Aid form in your fundraising pack or tick the correct boxes if they’re donating online.
Sending in your donations
If you’re fundraising through JustGiving, the donations will automatically come to us. If you’ve got cash to pay in, you can do this online, by phone, by bank transfer or by post.
