Thirty Incredible Years

The event launches as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations, remembering monumental achievements and all those who have been affected by this devastating disease. As we enter our 30th year, we remain committed to the fight against meningitis.

This year we are aiming to raise new funds to help us address complacency around the need to stay vigilant to ensure rapid diagnosis, support high vaccine uptake especially in young people, and to increase knowledge and understanding of the impact of the disease so everyone gets timely information and support.
