Colloide Run for Meningitis

Colloide Engineering Systems have set up two relay teams to compete within the Belfast City Marathon to be held on Monday 2nd May 2016.

Colloide’s relay teams were inspired by a member of staff having suffered a major health scare through contracting Meningitis. Through this incident awareness of the illness was greatly heightened. Subsequently Colloide staff have chosen to run for this great cause.

Colloide have set up a charity page in order to raise money for this charity – Meningitis Research Foundation. We would greatly appreciate any donations no matter how small in order to help people linked with this charity. Follow the link https://www.justgiving.com/Joanne-Irwin1 in order to donate.

Meningitis is a deadly disease that can disable people within hours. Anyone can be affected and globally 1,000 people die daily. We are raising money to invest in research, campaign for vaccines, provide symptom information and support those already affected.
