About

ARUK Explorer virtual hike is a walking challenge from Alzheimer's Research UK in partnership with Garmin and supported by Ordnance Survey. We're challenging you to walk a distance of your choice in your chosen location, and to raise vital funds for life-changing dementia research.

ARUK Explorer virtual hike runs from 1 September to 31 October and you can complete your challenge in any way throughout this time. Plus, if you raise £200 then you’ll receive an exclusive ARUK Explorer medal!

More people with dementia have died from COVID-19 in England and Wales than those with any other pre-existing condition. In fact, a quarter of COVID-19 deaths have been people with dementia .

One in three people born today will go on to develop dementia in their lifetime – but every step you take and every pound you raise has the power to change this through research.

Will you walk with us? 😊
