We’re excited to tell you about a new virtual challenge event that we’re launching to help raise money for Lyme disease research.
From 1 July to 30 September 2020, we’re encouraging our supporters to Walk, Ride or Climb for Lyme in a virtual challenge to help us keep on the path for change.
What’s it all about?
Due to the coronavirus and the cancellation of many sporting and fundraising challenges, we like many other charities are due to lose out on tens of thousands of pounds this year that would have been put towards our Lyme disease research fund.
Our ability to carry out life-changing research to improve the lives of the thousands of people suffering with Lyme is vital, and we need your help to ensure we can make this happen as soon as possible.
We’re therefore asking people who are passionate about improving care for Lyme patients to take on a trek, climb a hill or mountain, or even climb your stairs for our charity and raise money towards our research fund, whilst helping to raise awareness of Lyme.
We know our supporters have a wide range of interests, and physical capabilities, so we’ve come up with a challenge that anyone could get involved with. You can pick your activity and distance, and complete it at your own pace at your chosen time between 1 July and 30 September.
We’re aiming to raise at least £5,000 from the challenge, every penny we receive of which will go towards Lyme disease research.
So grab your running shoes, hiking boots, cycling gear or slippers and Walk, Ride or Climb for Lyme!
