Your very own Tour de France

Take your own Tour de France for Meningitis Research Foundation and you will help prevent death and disability from meningitis and septicaemia.

How you will help

By supporting us you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill or disable in hours. Although anyone of any age can get the diseases, babies, children and young adults are most at risk.

Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one, like Brian, or are dealing with after effects, like Kathleen.
