An incredible husband has raised a massive £60k for the Alzheimer’s Society in memory of his brave wife - and he does not plan to stop there.

Steve Boryszczuk’s wife Michelle was one of the youngest people in Britain to get Alzheimer’s Disease - and died in 2013, aged just 44.

Steve, from Wickenby, who admits to never having donated to charity until Michelle was diagnosed in 2008, now has his sights set on bringing his fundraising total to 
£100k.

He said: “I do it in memory of Michelle and to help everyone else who has Alzheimer’s.

“It’s possible that my two sons have it.

“People think it’s just an older person’s disease but it can happen to anyone.

“I do all I can for the charity, it really relies on fundraising.”

Steve has completed six fundraising treks and organised many fundraising events, such as film nights and 
walks.

He has also raised money for other charities, including £1,800 for prostate cancer.

He said: “The level of support I’ve had has been 
amazing.

“My target is £100k but I’ll carry on doing it as long as I 
can.”

And Steve has just left his job at Rasen’s Rase Steels so he can concentrate even more on fundraising.

His next big fundraiser is a 25-mile trek along Hadrian’s Wall on August 8.

And in October he is going to do a 10-day trek along the Great Wall of China - for the second 
time.

He said: “Last time I did it I raised £13,000.

“Hopefully I can raise more this time.”
