Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As many of you may know my nephew Adam died suddenly of meningitis on Saturday 7th January this year. It was sudden and with very little warning and the medical team did all they could to save him. Like most his age he had had the ACWY vaccination but this did not include the B vaccine which is not given routinely! He was only 16. A lovely and kind strapping lad who had just started studying for his A Levels and had his whole life ahead of him. It's left us all devastated.  

Adam kept himself fit and loved his sports and had a real passion for running, therefore I could not think of a more fitting way in which to honour his memory so on Sunday 23rd April I will be running the London Marathon.

I will be fundraising and raising awareness for Meningitis Research Foundation as something has to be done to stop others like Adam of dying from this virus.

I will be running for two charities on Sunday 23rd April, here's a link to my other fundraising page with details of why www.justgiving.com/fundraising/GregHorsleyLM2017LfL

Thanks so much for any donations that you are able to make.
