NOW the Christmas period is over and the celebrations have finished, why not burst those January blues by taking on a life changing New Year challenge?

Adventure is on the horizon as we see in the New Year, with whole raft of treks, runs, cycles, challenges and overseas opportunities from Meningitis Now available to get your adrenaline pumping, while raising lifesaving funds for a fantastic cause.

Emily Millington, Events Manager at Meningitis Now, said: “While everyone is suffering from the January Blues why not give yourself something to look forward to and train for?

“We have some really exciting challenges in 2016, such as Tough Mudder throughout the year, The Three Peaks Challenge and a London to Paris cycle in June, The Royal Parks Half Marathon in October and, if you fancy going a bit further afield, a trek through China in September.”

The leading UK meningitis charity has guaranteed places in a wide range of events and throughout 2016. Find out more at www.meningitisnow.org/support-us/featured-events

Emily continues: “There really is something for everyone, and as well as a once in a lifetime experience, you will be helping a fantastic charity raise lifesaving funds.”

When taking part in an event for Meningitis Now, every penny raised will help fund vital research, awareness and support for people affected by the devastating disease.

Each year there are an estimated 6,000 cases of viral meningitis and 3,200 cases of bacterial meningitis in the UK. 1 in 10 cases of bacterial meningitis result in death and a third of those who survive will be left with debilitating after-effects.
