Love to Move for Dementia

Love to Move for Dementia


Raised so far

  • About

This July, take part in Love to Move for Dementia and challenge yourself to walk 10,000 steps every day of July to raise money for the British Gymnastics Foundation.

From the 1st July – 31st July 2022, join a movement of incredible fundraisers who will be walking, running, dancing or even completing their daily housework to rack up their steps in the comfort of their own environment. Not only will you be able to embrace the summer sun and improve your mobility and fitness, but the money raised through this fundraising event really could change the quality of life for somebody living with Dementia.

All funds raised will go to the British Gymnastics Foundation including our Love to Move programme, our seated movement and cognitive enhancement programme aimed at older people from 55 to 105. It particularly benefits people living with dementia and other cognitive disease.

Just £300 would pay to train a Love to Move deliverer to go on to deliver Love to Move to those in need in thier area. 

“This is miracle work! Some of the people start the class barely able to talk and within weeks there is a difference.”   Community Centre Manager
