Back in 2015 Meghan Hadfield was a student at Westminster University when she took time out of her studies to film promotional videos for The Protool Plastics Group and sister company Protool Manufacturing.
Fast forward to 2019 and Meghan has moved on considerably with jobs at ITN News, Channel 4 News and Bloomberg News working alongside broadcasting legends such as Alastair Stewart and Jon Snow.
We are therefore delighted to support Meghan when she runs the Richmond Half Marathon in July 2019 for Alzheimer’s Research UK & Alzheimer’s Society.
Meghan explains below:-
“In the spirit of New Years Resolutions I decided to start pushing myself out of my comfort zone and this most certainly is doing just that! I will be running a half marathon in July in support of Alzheimer’s Society.
In the UK alone from 2005/06 to 2016/17, the number of people on the dementia register rose from 213,000 to 458,461, an increase of 115%. Research is key to help those affected as not everyone with dementia actually receives a diagnosis. This can be due to a number of factors including difficulty diagnosing in the early stages, the slow progression and limited public awareness of the diseases that cause dementia. Let’s raise awareness!
I am running for those affected, the families caring for loved ones and to the qualified care givers. I greatly appreciate all your help, and I will make sure I post updates of how the training is going.”
