My story

[p]I've only gone and done it, got a charity place for the wonderful Meningitis Now.[/p][p][b]Who is Meningitis Now?[/b][/p][p]Meningitis Now is a small [b]national[/b] charity which was started by parents in 1986 after an outbreak of meningitis in Gloucestershire. They are working towards a future where no-one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected by meningitis gets the support they need to rebuild their lives. To help them achieve this they:[/p][p] • Save lives by funding research into vaccines and other forms of prevention[/p][p]• Support individuals and families whose lives have been changed forever by meningitis[/p][p]• Provide a powerful, united voice for people affected by the disease[/p][p]• Educate and raise awareness, particularly around the need for a fast diagnosis and treatment[/p][p]It is estimated that every year in the UK around 8,000 people contract either bacterial or viral meningitis. Babies and under-fives are most at risk followed by teenagers and young adults. 1 in 10 people contracting bacterial meningitis die. Of those that survive, 1 in 3 are left with lifelong after-effects, such as hearing loss, limb-loss, acquired brain injury, behavioural problems, chronic fatigue, pain and memory loss. The social and emotional after-effects are often less visible. We know from the ‘Meningitis and Me’ survey that many people feel isolated and experience depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. [/p][p][b] [/b] The HQ is based in Stroud does amazing work with people dealing with this illness and preventative work. Some of you may know we fostered sweet Macey a lovely greyhound who was a Meningitis survivor (yes dogs get this too!) , and she became the charities mascot last summer. [b][u]but I am raising money for people[/u][/b][/p][p]This challenge takes me well out of my comfort zone but your donations will help me in every mile.[/p][p]Thanks guys for digging deep. You are the stars.[/p][p]Cheers[/p][p]Steve [/p]
