Waddle with Monty and have a quacking time!
Toddle Waddle is a fun, short sponsored walk or waddle for the under 5s.
We launched our Toddle Waddle event 13 years ago, to make more childcare professionals and parents aware of meningitis and the devastation it can cause, and to help raise funds to carry on our much-needed work.
Your toddlers will love waddling with their friends and doing fun arts and crafts activities that you can print off in our Action Zone.
Money your toddlers raise by taking part in Toddle Waddle can make a big difference to other toddlers like Riley.
Riley contracted meningitis and septicaemia when he was a year old. As a result, he had half of his left foot, including his toes, amputated and part of his nose. He has also been left with severe scarring on his body and will need ongoing operations.
Mum, Bev, said: "I'd urge you to organise a Toddle Waddle. If it wasn't for people, like you, raising money, [Meningitis Now] wouldn't exist. They have helped us from day one; through phone calls, family days and having a home visit.
"We've also received financial support to assist with travel costs for hospital appointments. Taking part also means you'll be armed with lifesaving information, should you need it – I can't stress enough how important this is."
Meningitis Now is the new name for Meningitis UK and the Meningitis Trust. Our goals remain the same – saving lives and rebuilding futures.
