Racing to find a breakthrough in the prevention or treatment of dementia
Today, more than 55 million people worldwide are living with dementia. Without a cure, one in three people born today will die with dementia. A new person develops dementia every three seconds, and it is anticipated that by 2030 the global societal cost of caring for dementia patients will exceed US$2.8 trillion.
THIS CRISIS CANNOT CONTINUE
1 in 2 people born today will die with dementia!

Format - A backyard ultra is a form of ultramarathon race where competitors must consecutively run a distance of 6,706 meters (4.167 miles) in less than one hour. When each lap is completed, the remaining time within the hour is typically used to recover for the next hour’s race. The race is over when only one runner remains to complete a lap. The format of this event makes it conducive for anyone of all ages and skills to participate.
At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.
