Alexandra The Great – Peak District Challenge


Zaun is delighted to help and support Sales Estimator Alexandra Townsend when she embarks on the Peak District Challenge, aiming to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimers Society.

What is The Peak District Challenge?

Setting off from base camp in the idyllic Bakewell and venturing through the beautiful scenery in the Peak District National Park. Alexandra will be required to walk, jog or run the 100km route around the area of outstanding natural beauty.

Who are you raising money for?

Alexandra and her friend Josephine are raising money for The ‘Alzheimer’s Society’ charity. Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever. Until the day a cure is found, creating a society where those affected by dementia feel supported and live happy lives is of great importance. Great importance to those who unfortunately have dementia and to their loved ones.

Who is The Alzheimers Society?

Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer. Someone develops it every three minutes, and there’s currently no cure. We know it is scary facing up to it, but we must confront our time’s biggest health and social care challenge.

The Alzheimer’s Society is facing dementia head-on. Whether you’re a fundraiser, donor, partner, or affected by dementia in any way, they are working with volunteers to build a movement. Inspired by your voices, leading the way in support, society and research.

Why The Peak District Challenge?

Alexandra and Josephine decided to sign up for this challenge to raise money for a cause very close to both their hearts. Unfortunately, Alexandra’s grandad passed away early this year with Alzheimer’s, and Josephine’s Grandad currently suffers.

Alexandra said

We are doing this challenge for our Grandads. My own Grandad was one of my best friends, sadly he passed away earlier this year after suffering with Alzheimer’s. My Grandad spent his professional life in the armed forces and fitness was a priority and passion of his – he would have seen this mammoth challenge as a bit of fun! With this in mind we signed up and are both fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Society.

What is your target?

We are aiming for £1,500, but we are truly grateful for any sponsorship and support that is given

Support Alexandra and Josephine
