The campaign has now expired but it's not too late to support this charity.

NHS National Aspergillosis Centre sees hundreds of people with aspergillosis every year. Their highly specialised care improves the quality of life for all of those people, and supports the needs of many more both in the UK and overseas through its CARES team running support groups on Facebook and live on Zoom, https://aspergillosis.org.

The Fungal Infection Trust (FIT) provides vital support for the work of the CARES team, without which it would be much more difficult to maintain their unique work.

This year, starting on World Aspergillosis Day 2023 (1st Feb) the CARES team is paying back some of that support to FIT. There are five in the team: two runners, a cyclist and two walkers. We would all normally cover a few km a day so together we think we can cover the 18km A DAY needed to complete this challenge without too many blisters!

With your help we would like to raise £1 a km for the whole journey, so when we are passing your part of the UK (virtually, as we can't get 98 days off work!) please donate.

Keep an eye on our progress on aspergillosis.org.

Thank You and wish us well!
