MRF Fundraiser

Hi, my names Sean Freeney and I'm participating 8 day trek through the Atlas Mountains in Morocco to fund raise for the Meningitis Research Foundation. The flights and accommodation and what-not is all paid with my own money already. Everything donated will go  towards MRF.

"Meningitis is an inflammation (swelling) of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. A bacterial or viral infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord usually causes the swelling." Tis an awful disease and MRF are trying to stop it by 2030.

This disease is affecting 1.2 million people throughout the world annually,  About 70 percent of all Bacterial Meningitis occurs in children aged 5 and under.
The highest incidence of disease found in the 'meningitis belt' of sub-Saharan Africa. In this region, major epidemics occur every 5 to 12 years with attack rates reaching 1,000 cases per 100,000 population.

It'd be much appreciated if ye would donate to help this cause and send me to Morocco to drag myself through a few mountains. 
Thank you.
