Story

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.

Its that time of year again and after the success of last years run we have built a team for you all to sponsor!

On the 20th of july 2008 a team of runners will be running 10k in Londons Hyde park for the Bupa great capital run.We will be raising as much money as possible for the meningitis research foundation in memory of Harry Mills who sadly died on the 26th april 2007 aged 11,as a result of meningitis B.(for wich there is currently no vaccine available).

Meningitis and septicaemia affect about 3,000 people every year in the UK and Republic of Ireland. This works out at just over 8 every day, but there are more cases in winter than in summer. Anyone can get the diseases, but babies, children and young adults are most at risk.
 
One in ten people who get meningitis and septicaemia dies and many more are left with disabilities. No other disease kills faster; a healthy person could die in hours.
 
vaccines offer excellent protection, but they are not yet available for all forms. So it's vital to know the symptoms and what to do if you suspect someone has meningitis or septicaemia.

It is so important that the meningitis research foundation keep on recieving money to fund their research and to prevent any familys going through what harrys do.
