It is Lyme Disease Awareness Month!

Happy 1 year Anniversary Lyme Fight Foundation!

A Note from Mel:

Happy 1 Year Anniversary Lyme Fight Foundation. From a "crazy" idea I had sitting in an IV room, to an action plan, to the many 'To-do's" that come with starting a non-profit, to a surprising reality. I am so very proud of what we have been able to accomplish this year, the partnerships we have made, the friendships we have formed, and most of all the difference we have made in our community and for those struggling with Lyme. Our mission to educate, make aware, and to help others in need, I believe is off to such an amazing start! The "silver lining" I so hoped for, would NEVER be a reality without my beautiful family & friends that support me always. Your support, love, understanding and patience with me is my strength. Thank you! To my amazing, talented, and dynamic board / team that keeps everything moving , new ideas flowing, and most importantly saw my vision and felt strong enough to join the fight, I appreciate you ladies more than you will ever know. You ladies took the leap, support the mission each and every day, and share your precious time making such a difference. What an amazing team we make! To our sponsors and donors, I thank you all so very much for your kindness and generosity in supporting our vision and being a huge part of the change. Our mission is made a reality by each and everyone of you. We thank you! The community thanks you!

With our first year in the books, may all the years to follow be full of so many more wonderful times and the much needed progress we all hope for. I truly believe that together we will be successful! Together we will make a change.

Thank you everyone for all your support. You all are truly a gift to me.


Love Mel

Lyme Disease Awareness Month is here! Our billboard is up, our 5K race is off to a wonderful start, our radio interview was aired on 6 stations last Sunday morning bright and early at 6am, and the rally is this Friday at noon. May is off to a wonderful start! We hope you can join us at the rally and continue your support by helping us “Paint the Town Green”. Ways to do so are by placing a ribbon on your tree, displaying a green light on your porch, wearing a green ribbon, or even sharing our foundation with someone new. These little things make such a HUGE difference in awareness. Together we will spread the word and help keep everyone safe. We would love to see your “green” so please send your pictures! #lymeawarenessmonth

This Friday, May 7th is our first rally is being held at the California State Capitol West Steps and we are so very excited! Come dressed in green and help us bring much needed awareness. We will have some amazing speakers - Dr. Jamie Kunkle with Revolution Naturopathic, Lisa Gaertner with Bay Area Lyme Foundation and hear some heartwarming stories from several Lyme warriors. Will be a wonderful afternoon. Hope to see you all there!

There is still time to register for our second annual virtual race… Take a Bite Out of Lyme! This year we have added a fun photo contest and awards for the fastest male & female racers. Cannot wait to see all the fun pictures. Sign up today!

We have also set up a “meetup” May 16th at 8:30 am at William Pond ( by the restrooms) for those that would like to participate in the race with others. ( this is the same race as the virtual 5K) Our very own Ambassador Allie will start us off with some stretching and then we will walk/run/bike/crawl the American River Bike Trail together. Will be a fun morning.

Know someone or a company that would like to be one of our sponsors? Please have them contact us. We greatly appreciate everyone’s support.

Keep an eye open around Sacramento for our billboard! This week it is in Galt. We are so very excited and want to send a HUGE thank you to Clear Channel Outdoor and Bonney Plumbing for their generosity. Keep them both in mind for your next outdoor advertising and home project.
