Randox announce ‘Race Against Dementia’ as partner charity for Randox Grand National Festival 2024.

Race Against Dementia is announced as partner charity for Randox Grand National Festival 2024. The charity was founded by three-times Formula One World Champion, Sir Jackie Stewart, OBE, with the aim of funding much needed pioneering research into the prevention and cure of dementia.

Race Against Dementia is announced as partner charity for Randox Grand National Festival 2024. This will be their second consecutive year as partner charity. Founded by three-times Formula One World Champion, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, with the aim of funding much needed pioneering research into the prevention and cure of dementia.

Race Against Dementia’s vision is to one day win the race against dementia by accelerating global research towards a breakthrough cure. Together we can beat dementia – faster. Currently more than 55 million people are affected by dementia worldwide. Sadly, unless something changes, 1 in 3 people born today will die with dementia.

Dementia affects different parts of the brain; some people with dementia may have trouble remembering things, while others may have trouble with language or performing tasks they used to do easily. There are many types of dementia. Each one can affect people differently, causing problems with memory, thinking and behaviour. There is unfortunately, no cure currently for this progressive disease.

As pioneers of prevention and 4-year principal partner of the Randox Grand National, Randox is proud to spread awareness of the power of preventative testing which can identify fences to clear in your health early and make you a front runner for a healthier future. As a global diagnostics company, with over 40 years of experience and a focus on preventative healthcare, Randox and Race Against Dementia are natural partners.

Throughout the three-day festival at Aintree, the charity partner will be supported to highlight the impact of the disease and to raise funds for much needed research into its prevention and cure. On Ladies Day (Friday 12th April), Randox’s sponsored race over the Grand National Fences will be titled ‘The Randox Supports Race Against Dementia Topham Chase’, with opportunities to reach out to both the racing public, and through the festival’s media coverage, to the nation.

In the pursuit of a cure for dementia, improved testing and diagnosis will both enhance patient management and greatly accelerate the race for treatment. In the last 12 months, Randox have processed over 5 million tests from health-conscious clients across the UK & Ireland, through our accessible and comprehensive in-clinic and at-home testing services.

Randox provides access to unrivalled insights that allow you to take control of your health, empowering you to make  simple lifestyle changes that could help protect future illness. Also offering specific tests across key health areas including sexual health, hormonal health, digestive, and a range of genetic and other health testing both at-home and in-clinic, at one of our health clinics located throughout the UK and now in selected John Lewis stores – providing easy access for millions of people to a new range of preventative health packages designed to help clients take control of their health.

Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, Founder of Race Against Dementia: “The Randox Grand National is truly a highlight in the sporting calendar. We, at Race Against Dementia are very grateful to Randox Laboratories for supporting us once again this year. Someone is diagnoses with dementia every three seconds and together, through raising funds and awareness, we can accelerate progress towards finding both a prevention and a cure for dementia.

Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Managing Director of Randox: “We are once again proud to partner with Race Against Dementia as our nominated charity for the Randox Grand National Festival 2024 – Race Against Dementia is a cause very close to our hearts!

“As a global diagnostics company, with over 40 years of experience and a focus on preventative healthcare, Randox and Race Against Dementia are natural partners.”
