I feel passionately about helping older people and want to do what I can to ensure they love later life. Helping to combat loneliness is something I want to be a part of.

Why run for Age UK?

When someone's deperately lonely and just needs to hear another voice, we are there.

When they've lost the person they love the most, we're there to help them find the strength to carry on.

When an older person is forced to live in a freezing house because they're worried about the cost of heating, we give them the support they need to regain control.

We're here because everyone deserves a place to turn to when times are tough. And with your support, we can continue to be there.

I recently lost my nan. She was my biggest supporter and now I want to do something for her. Something she would be proud of.
