Chris Evans, who was also behind the successful RunFestRun earlier this year, said on his show:

“One and a half million people are affected by dementia in one way or another…. This is for Dame Barbara and Scott (her husband). It is for Dementia Revolution, that is why we are going there, that is why we are running. We are going to auction off places on Thursday to come with us. The package is fantastic, the Frothy Coffee Man has really stepped up to the plate on this one. Real old school big charity package. Fly in style, we have hired a plane, we are going on our own plane. Why the heck not? How come we are doing this? Because we want big bids, we want to make it special.”
