On Sunday 2 April, a Fun Run and Meningococcal awareness event will be held in Renmark. JAZMYN’s Fun Run will not only raise awareness of the disease, but raise funds for Meningococcal Australia. There will also be plenty to entertain the kids including face painting, jumping castles etc.
Meningococcal is hard to identify as it can appear in several different forms, depending on which part of the body the bacteria invades.
To assist the community to have a better understanding of the disease, a meningococcal tent will be set up providing up to date information about the disease including the signs and symptoms to watch out for.
