Regiment Fitness is encouraging people to take on a 24 hour regiment fitness challenge and raise money for Dementia UK.

The organisation is teaming up with the charity to host Mission 24 at Inspire:Luton Sports Village on Saturday, September 19.

Participants can take on the challenge by themselves or as part of a team, they will be camping over night and will join in with regular fitness sessions activities and tabbing, a rapid march carrying a weight.

The organisers are advising those taking part to bring a change of clothes and to be prepared for all weather conditions.

Michael Cox, one of the organisers, said: “The idea of the challenge was to keep people involved with regiment fitness and enjoying the sessions and then we had the idea about joining up with a charity to help raise awareness and money.

“Dementia UK was an obvious choice because of the amount of support and help they provide for so many people, I watched some videos on it and I felt it was the right charity to support.”

Dementia UK aims to improve the quality of life for all people affected by dementia.

There are currently 50 people signed up for the challenge.

The entry cost is £24, for more information or to enter visit: www.regimentfitness.co.uk/mission24
