Join run to fight menin­gi­tis

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

We’d like to in­vite your read­ers who have been suc­cess­ful in the bal­lot for next year’s Lon­don Marathon, an­nounced this week, to join our team and stride out to help beat menin­gi­tis.

By run­ning for Menin­gi­tis Now you’ll be help­ing us to fight menin­gi­tis in the UK and move us ever nearer to our vi­sion of a fu­ture where no one dies from the disease and ev­ery­one af­fected gets the sup­port they need.

Sadly, menin­gi­tis and sep­ti­caemia con­tinue to af­fect thou­sands of peo­ple in the UK each year and kill more un­der5s than any other in­fec­tious disease. Help us fight back by fund­ing re­search, rais­ing

aware­ness and sup­port­ing sur­vivors.

Those who haven’t been suc­cess­ful in the bal­lot can also ap­ply to us for one of our guar­an­teed places in the Marathon – sim­ply visit www.menin­gi­tis­now.org/vmlm There’s a £100 regis­tra­tion fee and suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cants will need to pledge to raise £2,000.

Our friendly events team is on hand to sup­port your train­ing

and fundrais­ing and, as well as a run­ning top, we pro­vide a post-race re­cep­tion, in­clud­ing a sports mas­sage and re­fresh­ments.

It’s a day not to miss. Why not join our team to­day? Find out more by email­ing me at kirstyo@menin­gi­tis­now,org
