On 28th April, Andy ran the London marathon, having had a family experience of ticks and Lyme disease.
On 26th May, Jonathan ran the Edinburgh half marathon – another person with a family member who contracted Lyme disease.
Linda has been throwing herself in the mud in several obstacle courses – 20 in total with some still to come.
She is surely mad, but we are not arguing!
We had 5 riders in RideLondon this year! They all completed a gruelling 100 miles through Surrey. Some of these had never ridden this sort of distance before. Their times ranged from 4hr 9min (Graham powered his way through!) to 7hr 11min (Peter must have found it truly gruelling!) They all hugely deserve their medals.
Now there is Kate planning to walk the Camino de Santiago .
How about helping one of these committed souls to raise money for badly needed awareness and research?
We need help from everyone to achieve everything planned for this project – training events, podcasts, toolkit of resources etc.
Two workshops for GPs – Birmingham and Bristol – have gone really well and an Oxford workshop in July has just had to expand availability in response to the demand for places.
The on-line toolkit, hosted by the Royal College of General Practitioners is now live and available to everyone.

How about forwarding a link to your friends? If you are reading this page you probably know how difficult it can be to get a diagnosis of Lyme disease and how difficult it can be for many to get effective treatment.
