WE are asking people to whack on their walking boots and to take in some spectacular Welsh countryside – all to stamp out dreaded meningitis.
Meningitis UK is hosting its first Big Trek Across Wales, a wonderful 33-mile stroll through the picturesque Cambrian Mountains over two days, August 16 to 18.
This trek is a fantastic form of exercise and chance to raise money to fund pioneering research to find vaccine and other preventative measures to eradicate meningitis forever.
Tragically, 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.
To take part and help us achieve our vision or for more information, please contact me on 0117 303 3345 or email emmaking@meningitisUK.org.
