Do it for Dementia this Autumn with our Monster Dash!

"They did the dash, they did the Monster Dash, the Monster was an AlzScot smash!"

Autumn is here and #TeamAlzScot are pumpkin spicing up our Do it for Dementia virtual series.

The concept is simple, sign up to our Do it for Dementia campaign this October and add a Halloween twist to your challenge. Need some spooky inspiration?

·       Monster Dash: The clues in the name, set a running challenge and complete it on, or before the 31st October.

·       Do it for Dementia in Disguise: Dress up for your challenge with a Halloween face mask or go all out and dress head to toe in something spooky. If you’re able to fundraise why not agree to dress up if you reach your fundraising goal to entice people to donate.

·       Pumpkin Squat Challenge: How many squats can you challenge yourself to complete while holding a pumpkin! The heavier the pumpkin the bigger the challenge!

·       Ghost Rider: Gear up and complete your challenge on wheels (bicycle, exercise bike, Rollerblades?!)

·       Zombie Zumba: Challenge yourself to complete several home workouts and don’t forget to dress up. Be brave and livestream if you are fundraising to encourage donations.
