MARATHON FOR LYME
Earlier this year our close friend Holly was diagnosed with Lyme disease so we've decided to run 26.2 miles to help raise money and awareness of a disease that the medical industry still know's little about.
FACTS ABOUT LYME
1. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is spread to humans by a bite from an infected tick.
2. Lyme disease is known as the ‘Great Imitator’ as symptoms are nonspecific and can mimic so many other conditions.
3. 1 in 20 in the UK are expected to contract Lyme Disease in their lifetime
4. There is a free online course which UK GP's can take to learn about diagnosing & treating Lyme yet 3% of the GP's have done it. If you or your family were bitten would you want to be assessed by on of the 97% who haven't taken it?
If you want to learn more about lyme and why we are doing it then feel free to check out this link:
