11km Challenge for Dementia

11 People are Diagnosed with Dementia Every Day in Ireland


This September we are inviting Argos staff to get involved and take on the 11km Challenge for Dementia! We hope you’ll join us.  Tackle the 11km on your own or join forces with your teammates to conquer the challenge for the month of September.

Take part and clock up 11km per-person over the course of the month. That’s one Kilometer for every person diagnosed with dementia every day in Ireland.
  • Run, walk, jog, cycle or swim 11km during September to support people living with dementia.
