Admiral Nurse running for Dementia UK

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 knew it would be a big challenge, but also knew how much being able to raise funds for Dementia UK meant to me.
