Wrap up warm and get ready for a wintry adventure – our Virtual Lapland Dash is here!

Fundraise this festive season and join us for the Virtual Lapland Dash for Dementia UK! With every step you’ll be supporting families facing dementia, this Christmas and beyond.

You can take part whenever and wherever you like, and getting started is easy!

  1. Sign up to take part as a family.
  2. Personalise your fundraising page and share it with friends and family.
  3. Commit to completing 10k over as many days as you like throughout the month of December.

The virtual challenge takes you on a 10k route through Lapland. Along the way, you’ll reach checkpoints where Santa will ask you to retrieve items to bring with you to his workshop in Lapland!

When you sign up, an online fundraising page will automatically be created for you which is integrated with your map.

Registration costs just £5 and you’ll receive a free Dementia UK t-shirt. If you raise £60 or more we’ll send you up to three extra t-shirts for your team. £60 could pay for an Admiral Nurse to offer two hours of virtual clinics appointments to families, no matter where they are based. If you would like to order extra t-shirts before you’ve raised £60, you can purchase them in our shop.

Every penny you raise will help grow the number of dementia specialist Admiral Nurses who offer a lifeline to families affected by dementia.

FAQs

How do I order extra t-shirts?

When you register, you’ll be able to give details of your team members’ t-shirt sizes, and if you raise £60 we will send up to three extra t-shirts to you automatically. If you would like to order extra t-shirts before you’ve raised £60, you can purchase them in our shop.

Please allow up to two weeks for your t-shirt to arrive before contacting us.

How do I set up my fundraising page?

Your fundraising page will be automatically set up for you when you register. This is because the virtual map is integrated with your fundraising page.

Can I do any type of activity to complete the challenge?

You can walk, run, swim, cycle, scoot – you name it! You can integrate your Strava so any activity automatically moves you along the map, or manually enter your activity.

What if I can’t complete the 10k?

We understand you might not be able to complete your challenge for any reason and that’s absolutely fine. If you like, you can extend your challenge so you have longer to complete it; otherwise just let your sponsors know that you’re not continuing with the challenge.
