On 22nd and 23rd June, a group of family and friends of the Snell family, are planning a cycle ride 152 miles around Herefordshire over 2 days to increase awareness of Frontotemporal Dementia, improve support for those affected, and contribute towards research.

They will be fundraising in aid of two charities: The National Brain Appeal’s Rare Dementia Support Fund and Race Against Dementia.

Most of us know someone affected by dementia, and understand a little about its devastating effects on individuals and families.

However, fewer of us understand about the less common dementias, particularly those that affect younger people.

Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) is a group of dementias which mainly affects personality and behaviour or language and speech, depending on which areas of the brain are affected.

Rare Dementia Support (RDS) is a world-leading, UK-based service provided by the UCL Dementia Support Centre and partners and funded by the National Brain Appeal. 

RDS supports people affected by 7 of the rare dementias, including carers and families.

Race Against Dementia was founded by Sir Jackie Stewart OBE after his wife Helen’s FTD diagnosis. 

It funds early-career researchers to accelerate progress towards a cure for dementia. https://www.raceagainstdementia.com/

The money raised will be divided equally between the two charities.

Thank you so much for your generous support!

Confirmed riders committed to training and taking part in the event are:

From the Snell family, Nic, George, David, Anthony, Pip, Sophie, Tom, Rosie plus Jamie Rogers and Will Rogers along with many friends and partners to make a peleton of 23!
