About Vasculitis UK

Fundraisers Photo Gallery

Here are some of the fantastic fundraisers who have raised money for Vasculitis UK during over the years. Their efforts, and the donations made by their family and friends, will help us to meet our aims: to offer support and advice for those with vasculitis and their families - to raise awareness of vasculitis - to support and promote research into the causes and treatments of vasculitis. Many thanks to all concerned.

To see who the fundraisers are, and the event, simply hover your mouse over the photo.
