Hi there, glad to see you'd like to donate!

What's Dan doing?!

Student Adventures and RAG have kindly given me the opportunity next year (Sept 2nd-17th) to risk my life climbing the highest free-standing mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, Africa!

Before I can go I must raise £2850 for the brilliant charity: the Meningitis Research Foundation. I hope you can support me in the activities and challenges I will be doing to fundraise (see events below).

What is meningitis?
Meningitis is the inflammation of the lining covering the brain and 
spinal cord. 1 in 10 carry the bacteria that can cause meningitis. 
In some however, the bacteria can overcome the body's immune 
defences and pass into the blood stream, causing meningitis. 
The disease can affect anyone, babies children and young adults 
are particularly vulnerable.
Where does your money go?
-To the 19 current research projects, investigating new 
prevention, detection and treatment methods
-Toward the 10,000 meningitis helpline calls, taken every year
-Toward supplying life saving awareness literature to nurseries, 
schools, universities and surgeries

The money goes directly to the MRF to change the 2500 diagnosed with meningitis every year. Contributions, however small, are welcome. Remember: the larger your donation, the quicker we kill meningitis.

Thanks in advance!
