Meningitis Trust

posted 1 Oct 2012, 01:10 by Elesh Mistry

As some of you know, our family has been raising money for the Meningitis Trust for many years now following the the passing of my sister, Bhavini. On the 26th of February 2013, it will be the 25th anniversary of her death from meningitis and I will be working with a team of fellow students in Leicester to carry out a number of events to raise money leading up to February.


We will be working closely with the University of Leicester and local businesses, and the money raised will not only help to raise more awareness, but it will help families who have suffered, to rebuild shattered lives. The Meningitis Trust provide families with counselling  support and help individuals and families coping with handicaps following an attack of Meningitis.


To get us off the mark, I will be attempting the Leicester Half Marathon on the 14th of October 2012 and it would be fantastic if you would be able to support us. If you would like to sponsor me then please could you do so through the Just Giving website below. Also, below is a link for the Facebook group that we have created which will be regularly updated with the various events that we will be holding. If anyone is local and would like to come down to support me on the run or with any of the events then it would be great to see you and your support would mean a lot to us!
