Run to beat meningitis

We WOULD like to ask any reader who is bravely taking part in the Belfast City Marathon on May 3 and is looking for a sponsor to run for Meningitis UK.

Every week, six families have to face the sudden tragedy of losing a loved one to this devastating disease. Because it can kill in under four hours and the symptoms are notoriously difficult to spot, we believe a preventative vaccine is the only way to spare people this heartache.

Our Search 4 a Vaccine campaign aims to raise £7m to help fund cutting-edge research.

If you would like to take part in the Belfast Marathon and help us achieve our vision, please contact Toya on 0117 373 7373 for a sponsorship pack.
