MENINGITIS: Step forward to raise funds

editorial image

We are urging everyone to lace up for the world’s largest half-marathon, the Great North Run, to help the UK’s largest meningitis charity beat the deadly disease.

Meningitis Now wants anyone lucky enough to secure a place to tread through Tyneside on Sunday, September 9, for us, while the unlucky ones can grab one of our Golden Bond places.

Full support will be given. Our runners receive a free running vest or T-shirt, information pack with tips on how to prepare, and an invite to our post-race reception with refreshments and sports massage.

By running for us you’ll be helping to fight meningitis with every stride and move us one step closer to our vision of a future where no one in the UK dies from meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need.

Last year, our runners raised a fantastic £34,635.41 — we are so proud of you all. This year we’d like to do even better.

Help us by funding research to eradicate the disease, raising awareness and supporting survivors.
