About This Activity

Thank you for participating in the FIGHT THE BITE RUN!

This will be a fun, family, and pet friendly event. 

Your contribution to our organization will help find a cure,

fund research, and aid in educating our community about Lyme Disease.

Alabama Lyme Disease Association is an all-volunteer patient advocacy group dedicated to Lyme and associated tick-borne disease, prevention, education, and patient support. It is our goal to educate the southeast, Alabama specifically, on the existence of Lyme in our state, and to encourage individuals to advocate for themselves in their goal to regain their health. Alabama Lyme Disease Association offers support group meetings, educational presentations, awareness events, and news updates on legislative and scientific developments in the state. The Alabama Department of Health announced recently that 7 Alabama counties are endemic for Lyme Disease.  It is the fastest growing tick-borne infection in the country.
