Meningitis Now need volunteer runners

We’d like to invite readers to get their running shoes on and join the Meningitis Now team at this year’s Great North Run – the biggest and best half marathon in the world.

By running for us, you’ll be helping to fight meningitis with every stride, and move us one step closer to our vision of a future where no-one in the UK dies of meningitis, and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.

Tragically, meningitis and septicaemia continue to affect thousands of people in the UK, and kill more under-fives than any other infectious disease.

Help us fight back on all fronts by funding research to eradicate the disease, raising awareness and supporting survivors.

We have guaranteed places for the 13.1 mile challenge on September 10.

We offer full support from our friendly events team on training and fundraising, as well as a free running vest or t-shirt and post-race reception.

It’s a run not to miss.

Why not join our team today?

We have limited places available for just £25.
