RFL Raises $35,000 for National Meningitis Association!

It’s official! Thanks to the generous donations of dear friends and supporters, as well as the 650+ runners and walkers who registered and participated in the first annual Run For Lawson, the Lawson Mayfield Foundation recently presented the National Meningitis Foundation with a check in the amount of $35,000!

This amazing accomplishment would not have been possible without the efforts of a list of volunteers, donors and participants too long to name. Know that your support is genuinely appreciated and that every dollar we raise is supporting the cause of the NMA by raising awareness of meningitis.

We are overwhelmed with gratitude and so appreciative of our community’s support. The morning of the run was beautiful, with wonderful energy and happiness. It was a true celebration of Lawson’s life, and we know that she is proud of the efforts of all who were involved. While meningitis was responsible for taking Lawson’s life, it did not take her spirit, and this has never been more evident.

Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing all the participants at next year’s event.
