Join our Three Peaks Challenge to help fight meningitis

We are urging people to get their walking boots on and sign up for a Three Peaks Challenge ­– to help fight meningitis on all fronts.

Whether you join as an individual or a group from a club or workplace you’re promised an unforgettable experience in the Meningitis Trust/Meningitis UK’s Three Peaks Challenge Team. The challenge, tackling the three peaks of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis in just 36 hours, takes place between Friday 20 September and Sunday 22 September.

And the best part of it is that we take care of all the transport and accommodation throughout the challenge, as well as supplying a fully qualified safety team who will guide you on each mountain, so you’re free to concentrate on enjoying the activity. On top of that our friendly events team is on hand with fundraising support and advice as well as training and dietary information.

Not only will you enjoy the experience of a lifetime but every person who signs up will be making a difference to the lives of families affected by meningitis.

The merged charity needs to raise over £10,000 every day to fund its lifesaving and life-changing services.

Tragically, meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia continue to affect thousands of people in the UK every year and kill more children under 5 than any other infectious disease.

Meningitis can strike with incredible speed and the symptoms are notoriously difficult to detect, often being confused with flu.

We are fighting back on all fronts by funding research to eradicate the disease alongside supporting survivors with lifelong help and care.

To take part in the sponsored challenge, either as an individual or as a team with friends, family or colleagues, or for more information, contact me on 01453 769025 or email beckin@meningitis-trust.org.

Registration is also open on our webpage at www.meningitis-trust.org
