Running for a meningitis cure

Meningitis UK is inviting people to step out for its annual Big Fun Run fundraiser.

The 5km run, which takes place at Rother Valley Country Park on Sunday, August 5, raises money for the charity’s campaign to find a vaccine for the deadly disease.

Meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia continue to affect thousands of people in the UK every year and kill more children under five than any other infectious disease.
