Meningitis Research Foundation

We fund research and raise awareness to create a world free from meningitis

Story

The time has arrived, after many years of applying we are finally running the London Marathon. This is something that we’ve wanted to do since we were children, watching it with our parents and we are now lucky enough to be able to fulfil this ambition. 

Our dream was to do it together and in April we WILL cross the finish
line, whether it be running, walking or crawling! We are excited and nervous in equal measures, as novice runners a full marathon is a mammoth challenge for us but one that we are determined to complete.

We are using this unique opportunity to raise awareness and vital
funds for Meningitis Research Foundation. Claire and our elder sister Sam have both been unfortunate enough to be struck down with this disease but lucky enough to have survived. Therefore we have chosen this charity for the great work that they do in saving lives and we hope that you can support our fundraising mission.

Thank you for your donation, any contribution will really help to keep us motivated all the way to the finish line along with the blood, the sweat and the tears!

Sarah and Claire xx
