A RUN to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society will take place in Wareham Forest next month.

The Together for Alzheimer's 5K run on Sunday October 17 at 10am a will take place in Birchwood Tourist Park, Wareham, and will follow tracks around the forest.

People outside of the area can also join the run virtually and send in updates and photos.

Pilates instructor and personal trainer Alex Eversden said: “I am really excited that this is the 14th year we have organised Together for Alzheimer's. It's always a fun event that attracts both club runners and family walkers.

"All money raised will go to The Alzheimer’s Society which does fantastic work in helping those affected by dementia as well as research to find a cure for this devastating disease. It is close to my heart so it would be wonderful if we could pull together and meet (or exceed) our target of £1,000.”

Entry fees are £10 for adults, £5 for children and £25 for a family. Sponsor forms are also available for further fundraising or donations.
