CM2000 staff climb Snowdon for Alzheimer’s Society

A group of staff from healthcare technology specialist CM2000 climbed the tallest mountain in Wales to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society.

Team spirit prevailed through driving rain and the group took a very respectable 3 hours to climb the  Snowdon Ranger path to the top.

All sponsorship money raised by individuals was doubled by the CM2000 Charitable Trust meaning the total currently stands at £4,000 (and still rising).

Alzheimer’s Society is a charity to close to CM2000’s heart due to the great work they to support anyone affected by dementia.

There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK and there’s currently no cure. The number is set to rise to 1 million by 2021.

Earlier this year CM200 staff had the opportunity to undertake the well regarded Dementia Friends training.

In addition to supporting Alzheimer’s Society, CM2000 are working with Birmingham City University and homecare providers on an exciting project that identifies the early indicators of dementia, enabling timely intervention and better pathway support.

The project, known as UNTAPPED (Utilising Novel Techniques to Assess Predictive Patterns in Early Dementia), embraces predictive modelling technology and under-explored social and behavioural indicators to identify dementia risk up to 15 years earlier.

Mark Thomas, Managing Director of CM2000 says “Dementia is the biggest health challenge facing our society. CM2000 are committed to fundraising and technology projects that we believe will make a difference.”
