What is Kawasaki Disease?

Kawasaki Disease is predominantly a childhood illness though it can affect people of any age. Its cause is unknown. Kawasaki Disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. Awareness of Kawasaki Disease is currently low and it is often mistaken for other common childhood illnesses, leading to misdiagnosis and delayed treatment. Children who go untreated or who are treated later face higher risks of developing complications including lifelong heart damage. Early diagnosis and treatment are key to better outcomes.

Kawasaki Disease – why haven’t I heard about this before?

Kawasaki Disease is increasingly common in the U.K, globally cases are rising fast – but it remains little known by doctors and the general public alike. We want to change this! Too many children and young people today have heart damage because of Kawasaki Disease. The consequences of this can be very serious and can be lifelong …help us change this.

Could I run a marathon for Societi?

If the thought of a longer run appeals to you and this 10km is the first in your marathon journey then why not run for Societi in the Brighton Marathon?
