Around The Courses In 80 Days: My Charity Challenge for Dementia UK

In a world where adventure meets altruism, I (Graham Arnold) am about to embark on an extraordinary journey that not only tests my endurance but also aims to make a profound difference in the lives of others.

On April 7th, I will kick off my charity challenge, Around The Courses In 80 Days, in support of Dementia UK, beginning with the first leg at Exeter Racecourse. This ambitious endeavor is not just about traversing landscapes; it's a heartfelt mission to raise awareness and funds for a cause close to my heart.

Preparation for this epic journey began many months ago. Alongside my supportive wife Julie, who will be by my side for the first week, we will be flying over to the UK to finalise arrangements. On April 1st, we'll pick up the vehicle generously donated by Rogues Gallery Racing & Essex 4x4 Centre, which will serve as my trusty companion throughout the expedition. Our first stop? A visit to Dementia UK offices in London, setting the tone for the charitable spirit driving this venture. From there, we'll wind our way along the south coast, arriving in Exeter on April 6th to rest and recharge before the challenge kicks off.

Dementia UK's cause resonates deeply with me, fueling my determination to make a meaningful impact. With each mile conquered, I hope to not only raise funds but also shine a spotlight on the challenges faced by those affected by dementia and their families. It's more than a journey around racecourses; it's a journey of solidarity and support.

None of this would be possible without the unwavering support of sponsors and accommodation partners who have rallied behind my cause. Rogues Gallery Racing, in particular, stands as a beacon of support, embodying the spirit of community and compassion.

For those inspired to join me on this odyssey of goodwill, donations can be made via the QR code provided or through the website Every contribution, no matter how big or small, fuels the mission and brings hope to those affected by dementia.

As the countdown to April 7th begins, anticipation mounts, and excitement fills the air. Around The Courses In 80 Days is more than just a challenge—it's a testament to the power of compassion, resilience, and the human spirit. So let us join hands, let us support, and let us embark on this journey together. Let the adventure begin!
