Run for dementia

Update posted by Glenn Monaghan On Nov 05, 2018

Just a thank you to everyone that donated and an update for everyone on how training going. The fundraising and training has taken a blow the last few weeks to say the least. 6 weeks after the WTF 100miler and evening is still very fatigued, legs and mind. I’m trying really hard to find motivation to train while feeling tired and run down. But that’s nothing to the mental strain & the fatigue of getting up in the middle of the night to take care of someone with Dementia. The strain of watching someone you love slip further and further away, each day.

I’m looking to get a few ideas on how to kick start the fundraising again. Also if anyone knows a company that would like to support Run for Dementia please get them to get in touch. 15 weeks left to the Delirious West 200 Miler.

Well that hurt...... can’t walk great yesterday and today. But it was worth every painful step, we’ve raised over $3000 so far. I’ve no doubt that I’d of pulled out after 120km or so, if it wasn’t for this great cause and everyone’s amazing support. My right knee and achilles where extremely painful, every step on the uneven ground soon became unbearable. It’s at this stage I’d especially like to thank my pacers Mickey, Andy Ann who we’re amazing at keeping in moving (Sorry I wasn’t great company guys) and my totally amazing, awesome, words can’t describe the kindness she made off wife.... Louise👏👏👏👏 for driving from point to point to feed me, take care of me, tell me keep moving, help me into the car at the end, up the steps to the room.... trust me the list goes on and I think I’d the easy part of the day.

The challenge ahead is now to complete the 200 miler!!!! In February 2019. Now keep in mind I could barely walk after the 100 miler yesterday so to double it seems unlikely, some might say a streached target🤨🤨.

I know almost everyone I know has donated money at this stage (your all so kind) I’ve also no right to ask but here goes anyway..... please please please can we get a few people that have possibly been affected with Dementia or Alzheimer’s or are just awesome fundraiser to join the cause. To come up with ideas for a couple events.... I know people are busy with their lives, it’s a pain in the ass(trust me I’d a pain in the ass after 100km of rubbing) however it’s nothing to having to live with the thought off... Oh shit I’ve just been diagnosed with Dementia, the fear of losing the not only your memories of your whole life, but the fear losing your love ones faces....

$10000 is the new target..... that’s another $7000 in just over 4 months. We need your help, people and families living with Dementia need your help..... please you know you want to.

There goes the 3k mark.... Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Something really special is happening here and your all apart off it. Everyone’s raised over $3000 in a few weeks, with everyone’s help and ideas.... just think what we can achieve by February for Alzheimer’s WA and Ireland.

Now just to survive tomorrow’s 100 mile trail run and use it as a learning experience for 200 miler in February!!!!!

2 days out from the WTW 100 miler and I don’t mind saying I’m shutting it. It’s about this stage where you realise oh this is going to hurt. But seeing the continued support role in is amazing.. let’s try and break the 3k mark before the race. I’m very thankful and grateful that I don’t suffer from Dementia and will be able to remember all your support on race day, when I feel like quitting.

Thanks to everyone that has donated and shared the Facebook page.

Looking for volunteers to add to this campaign, that will run a few small fundraisers in the lead up to the 200 miler February

Funds will go to the local area's, but the same great reasons. To help support the families and the sufferers of dementia.
