Our Lyme Legend Fundraisers

Charity Single

Toby Music UK

Singer and songwriter Toby has suffered from Lyme for almost 14 years.

He wrote song ‘Never Going To Love You‘ about his struggle with health and released it as a charity single in May 2020. Pre-order profits came to Caudwell LymeCo and Lyme Disease UK.

2.6 Challenge 2020

Milly Flynn charity exercise class

Milly Flynn

Milly took on the 2.6 Challenge for us in April 2020, running a 26 minute online fitness class (here she is in action in the pic) and raising well over £1,000.

Milly joined the campaign in memory of her cousin, Fliss, who suffered with Lyne and sadly took her own life in 2017.

John O’Groats to Lands End

Martin Smith

Martin took on this epic bike ride in memory of his friend Darren.

Martin raised £1,000 for our charity. Thank you, Martin!

Chase The Sun Bike Ride

Chris Sergeant

Chris took on a 205 mile bike ride across the south of the UK in one day to raise funds for Lyme disease, in honour of Darren, the same friend as Martin.

Sadly, Darren passed away a few days before the challenge, but Chris bravely carried on with the ride and has so far raised over £1,300. Well done Chris, we’re so grateful.

Vitality 10,000

Rachael Gibson

Rachael was struck down by Lyme disease in 2009 and suffered debilitating symptoms for 8 years before finally being diagnosed.

She ran the Vitality 10,000 with friends Charlotte and Katie in May 2019, and hopes that with further research and training for NHS doctors is in place, less people will have to suffer in the way she did. Thank you, Rachael!

Leeds Half Marathon

Charlotte, a former marathon runner, suffered rare neurological symptoms of Lyme disease when she caught the disease in 2018, including bilateral facial palsy.

She continues her recovery today, and in May, ran the Leeds Half Marathon with some of her colleagues, raising over £1,000 for our charity. What an inspiration! Thank you.

Bath Half Marathon 2019

Sharon Stevenson

Sharon’s partner Graeme got bitten by an infected tick in Dec 2017, and Lyme disease has given him debilitating symptoms such as ongoing chronic fatigue, aching joints, flu and neurological problems.

She ran the Bath Half Marathon for the charity in March 2019 to help in our mission to get everyone help and treatment on the NHS and raised over £1,000!
