Support Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA) in the Blackmores Virtual Sydney Running Festival 2021

Did you know that physical activity throughout life influences brain health in late life? With COVID-19 restricting us in many ways, this is your opportunity to get active in a virtual event while raising funds for vital dementia research.

The future of ageing will be greatly impacted by the outcomes of research being undertaken at CHeBA. Our mission is to stay at the forefront of research into brain ageing and cognitive disorders. Ultimately, CHeBA’s goal is for all people to achieve their full life span and enjoy good quality of life unaffected by loss of cognitive ability.

To achieve our goal, we need your help!

Run or walk your chosen distance (42km marathon, 21km half marathon, 10km run or 3.5km family run) between Sunday 19 September to Sunday 17 October 2021.

Funding is desperately required to advance our research in ways to prevent cognitive decline, improve cognitive functioning as we age, devise better care for people with dementia and to diagnose people at risk for dementia. The researchers are also working on developing markers of early decline in memory and other cognitive functioning, so that brain diseases can be detected before the manifestation of dementia.

Of our target

Every dollar raised for CHeBA will support a number of priority research projects to promote healthy brain ageing and delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
