Thank you to all those who have donated and/or read about Encephalitis. I've had a few people message to say they had never heard about it prior to reading my post so i'm grateful that more people are becoming aware and with your donations it will help to provide support for those effected by Encephalitis as well as contribute towards life changing research.

We have one team member completed all 40k and two with only a couple of kilometres each to finish!

1 week in

Hi all, thank you for visiting this page! We have managed to run over 30k betwen us in week one with most of us having not run more than a couple of kilometeres continuously in a long time.

We are trying to push ourselves out of our comfort zone to help raise awareness of Encephalitis, bringing light to something that is often difficult to diagnose. I had Encephalitis 10 years ago and prior to falling ill with it, had never heard of it. If this can help reach someone who has just been diagnosed and needs information or support regarding Encephalitis than we will be grateful. Thank you!

We are making every step count this February

This February, We are taking part in BrainWalk and walking, jogging or running as far as we can to improve my own health and wellbeing and help save lives! 

We are raising money for the Encephalitis Society, a cause close to my heart.
Encephalitis is a neurological condition that can be devastating. Here are five facts you may not know: 


1. Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain.

2. It is caused by an infection or through the immune system attacking the brain.

3. Anyone can be affected by encephalitis – no matter their age, gender or ethnicity.

4. It has a high death rate and survivors are often left with an acquired brain injury and life-changing consequences.

5. It is more common in many countries than motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, bacterial meningitis and cerebral palsy.

One person is diagnosed with encephalitis every minute across the world, and life for them and their loved ones will never be the same again.

Every donation we receive will go to the Encephalitis Society, helping accelerate understanding and awareness of encephalitis and ensuring that those affected by this serious neurological condition get the crucial help and support they need. Please help if you can.
