Meningitis Awareness and Meningitis Research Fundraising Events
in Loving Memory of
Jennifer Leigh Wells
Thank you for supporting the Jennifer Wells Moonlight for Meningitis Research Walk/Run for the past 8 years! You have helped in raising over $100,000 for meningitis research in Jennifer’s memory. We are extremely grateful for your years of support.
While we will continue to bring awareness of meningitis and fundraise for meningitis research, we will be focusing our efforts in other ways and hope you will continue to partner with us in those events.
Currently there is a ThirtyOne gifts fundraiser and our annual yard sale will take place June 6th. You can find more details about these events by clicking the tabs on the right.
Check back often for details of new events. Thank you for your past and continued support!
