Fundraise for Alzheimer Society UK at OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO
and help our effort to unite against dementia!

Alzheimer’s Society joins Cancer Research UK in supporting the 12th edition of this flat, fast and scenic race in beautiful Cyprus.

All money raised at the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO for Alzheimer’s Society will help the charity in its effort to unite against dementia. Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity investing in research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention, whilst working to meet the needs of people affected by dementia and inspiring change. All fundraising efforts will help Alzheimer’s Society to make greater progress towards its vision of a world without dementia, and its announcement as Charity Partner is expected to be warmly received by the many British runners preparing to run in Limassol next spring.

Anyone wishing to run the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO for Alzheimer’s Society should sign up for a place on the race website , and then get a fundraising pack directly from Alzheimer’s Society. The charity will supply a free running top and support all the way.

For runners wishing to support Alzheimer’s Society but preferring a shorter distance, the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO offers six races over two days, Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th March. The choice of race distances enables runners of all abilities to enjoy the friendly atmosphere, warm spring weather and stunning natural scenery of Limassol, all made easier by the availability of low-cost flights from the UK and specially tailored packages from the race organisers.

OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO Race Director Andreas Spyrou commented: “It is a pleasure to welcome Alzheimer’s Society as a Charity Partner for the 2018 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO. The work they do is vital in the fight against dementia and we hope that many runners will support the charity by obtaining a fundraising pack and raising valuable funds for Alzheimer’s Society next March. Limassol is a first-class destination for a race, offering a wonderful mix of Mediterranean climate, beaches, food, culture and history as well as an extremely warm welcome. Our early bird prices are still available, guaranteeing the lowest possible prices, so now is definitely the time to register to #RunLimassol! Competitors then have a good six months to start training and fundraising for Alzheimer’s Society. We are looking forward to helping to make a difference to this excellent cause.”

Suzy Edington, Events Fundraising Manager at Alzheimer’s Society, added, “Alzheimer’s Society is delighted to be a Charity Partner at the 2018 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO. The event has an excellent reputation and is the perfect platform for charity fundraising, with its flat and attractive course suitable for all abilities. We hope that many runners will be motivated to run for Alzheimer’s Society and help us unite against dementia. In return, we will be providing our runners with masses of support! It is very easy to join Team Alzheimer’s Society once registered for the race, and we look forward to cheering on as many participants as possible.”

If you wish to #RunLimassol for Alzheimer’s Society you should secure your place with OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO first, and then request a sponsorship pack from Alzheimer’s Society.
