We want to say a massive THANK YOU to all our supporters, donors and fundraisers. Our mission of funding desperately needed research cannot be achieved without your help, and we are so grateful.
Here are some of our recent Lyme Legends.
Windsor Half Marathon
Rob got in touch with the charity whilst suffering from Lyme disease, looking for some information and advice on treatment.
He promised to raise money for us in a fundraising challenge once he was well enough, and he was true to his word!
Thank you, Rob! A true Lyme warrior.
Sarah ran the marathon in memory of her beloved childhood friend, Fizz, who sadly took her own life due to the suffering she faced from Lyme disease.
Sarah smashed her fundraising target of £2,250 on what must have been a very emotional day.
Well done Sarah!
Amber took on a number of challenges to raise money for her good friend Holly, who suffers from Lyme disease.
These challenges ended with the Brighton Marathon, and also included the London Naked Bike Ride!
She absolutely smashed her £1,000 target, and we’re so grateful to all the training and hard work she put in.
Thank you, Amber!
Vic Goodchild & Jack McCombe
Vic and Jack were also running for their friend Holly, joining our other Brighton runners who were the first ever in the UK to run marathons in support of Lyme disease.
They raised an amazing amount of money, smashing their £2,500 target.
Thank you, Vic and Jack!
Nick decided to run the Brighton Marathon for to raise money for Caudwell LymeCo after a friend ended their life while suffering from the disease.
He’s passionate about raising awareness of the disease and raised a fantastic amount of money.
Thank you, Nick.
Greg ran the London Marathon in memory of someone very close to him who struggled desperately with Lyme disease and is no longer with us.
Not satisfied with completing the toughest marathon of his life in sweltering heat, this talended drummer gave a storming charity rock concert the same evening! He over doubled his fundraising target, raising almost £8,000 for the charity.
Well done, Greg!
George took on the brutal Ironman UK in July 2018, in honor of his brother Charlie, who suffers from the disease. The challenge consisted of swimming 2.4 miles, cycling 112 miles and then running a marathon. Having never done a sports challenge like this before, we think he’s super brave but also a little bit crazy!
George smashed his fundraising target of £3,000.
Well done George!
Alice Liefgreen and Toby Pilditch
After the cousin of a close friend was severely affected by Lyme disease, Alice wanted to support the cause by completing a Tough Mudder in September 2018.
She and her friend Toby raised a great amount of money for the charity.
Well done Alice & Toby!
Alex McGill & Stewart Charles
Alex and Stewart ran the Venice Marathon in October this year, in support of Alex’s wife, Lottie, who suffered from Lyme disease.
At the time, the majority of Venice was under water after the worst flooding in decades. But the boys powered through and raised an amazing amount of money for the charity.
Thank you both!
Lottie & Saskia’s Quiz Night
Lottie and Saskia Amor are sisters, and the wives of Alex and Stewart featured above.
As mentioned, Lottie suffered from Lyme Disease for three years.
She says she was lucky enough to be able to seek and receive the treatment she needed, but knows this isn’t the case for everyone.
Not to be outdone in the fundraising stakes, the ladies hosted a fundraising quiz night with family and friends and raised over £2,800!
Absolutely amazing, and it shows there are all sorts of ways to raise money if sporting challenges aren’t your preference or capability.
