Rob said: “He developed Alzheimer’s for about three or four years before he died in 2006.

“Its a charity that is very close to me, having gone through it with my family and this is just something I’d like to do to give back to the society in the hope that it will help other families in that position.”

The ambitious 100km route will stretch between Winston Churchill’s residence, Chartwell House, and the White Cliffs of Dover, in homage to his grandfather’s service, and the many,many like him, during the second world war.

He plans to complete the 100 To Remember run on Armistice Day, November 11, 2022, in 11rs, 11 minutes and 22 seconds.

Rob aims to raise the million by following the six degrees of separation.

He explains if each person is able to donate £1 and share the message with six other people who repeat this process over £1m could be raised in just eight phases.
