My story

[p]I'm running the London Marathon 2019 in aid of Meningitis Now. My sister Olivia tragically died in November 2012. My parents and I had no idea what could have caused her sudden death at the age of just 30 and were shocked to ultimately find out that the cause was meningitis. I had always assumed that children and babies were those at risk. Since Olivia died I've subsequently found out that meningitis can strike people of any age with devastating effects, including healthy adults as well as children and babies.[/p][p]I was very lucky to get a ballot place in the London Marathon 2019. I want to use this opportunity to raise both money but equally as importantly, to raise awareness of meningitis in memory of my amazing sister. So please do donate on this page to help support the fantastic research and campaining of Meningitis Now, but also visit [url=https://www.meningitisnow.org/meningitis-explained/signs-and-symptoms/signs-and-symptoms-children-and-adults/]https://www.meningitisnow.org/meningitis-explained/signs-and-symptoms/signs-and-symptoms-children-and-adults/[/url] to find out more about the symptoms of this disease. If running 26.2 miles can help to raise money and awareness and means that one person can be saved from this disease, all that training will be very worthwhile! [/p]
