Lyme Disease Challenge

The Lyme Disease Challenge began on March 1st 2015!

Lyme Disease is one of the fastest-growing infectious diseases in the country and a tremendous health problem. You can help us to raise awareness and funds to improve Lyme Disease treatment by participating.

Are you in? Great! Then follow the three easy steps below and donate $10 to International Lyme and Associated Diseases Educational Fund (ILADEF), the IRS 501(c)(3) educational foundation of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). Prefer not to take the bite? That’s okay too! Donate $100 to ILADS instead. All donations accepted here:

The Lyme Community has selected the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS) to receive all the proceeds of the campaign. Your donations will go to their non-profit foundation, International Lyme and Associated Diseases Educational Fund (ILADEF). ILADEF is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your contribution is tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

1. TAKE A BITE: Bite a lime and TAKE A PHOTO OR A SHORT VIDEO of the act – the more sourpuss your face, the better (and funnier)! Post it on social media using #lymediseasechallenge – make it public so others can view it!

2. SHARE A FACT: State ONE BRIEF FACT ABOUT LYME DISEASE, such as the facts provided on www.lymediseasechallenge.org. Help us spread the true facts about Lyme Disease!

3. PASS IT ON: Keep the campaign going — CHALLENGE THREE OTHER PEOPLE – your friends, family, whomever! – to take a bite! Mention them in your video or if you do a photo tag them in your post.
