The KA2 Limited team took part in Trek 26 South Devon Coast – 13 Mile, to raise vital funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Every three minutes someone in the UK (United Kingdom) is told they have dementia, and there is no cure.
The Alzheimer’s Society is a charity that means a lot to the team at KA2 Limited. Especially to our CEO Chriss Andrews who sadly lost her mother, Enid, to vascular dementia in 2019. And to Karl Henneker – FIRP, KA2 Head of Technology and Business Operations who lost his grandfather, Baden in 2003 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Supporting Chriss and Karl and joining them on the trek was Lewis Martin, KA2 Head of Enterprise Service Management and Darius Boteand KA2 Junior Developer.
The KA2 Limited team took on the 13-mile trek through the English Riviera, enjoying stunning views across the water as they walk through woods, along cliff tops and past stunning beaches which they completed in around 6 hours (including a few much-needed pit stops along the way).
And we are pleased to say that we raised a little over £1200 for this fantastic cause.
Lewis Martin said: It was a fantastic day. The atmosphere was great, and it was good to talk to other walkers and share stories of loved ones that have been lost to this terrible disease. It reminded us of why we were doing it and helped us to push on when it started to get tough. We all had a great sense of accomplishment when we reached the finish line.
Over the weekend we received news that, along with our fellow trekkers, collectively, we raised £374,034 for people affected by dementia. This is a fantastic achievement and one that all participants should be proud of.
But if you haven’t donated, you can do so at any time.
Thank you for your support.
