We Need Your Support!

Lyme Disease Awareness Month (May 2021)

May is National Lyme Disease Awareness Month, a chance for Lyme patients, activists and educators to spread information on how to prevent Lyme and tick-borne diseases. We’ve created a virtual walk/run that you, your family, and friends, can participate to help spread awareness and help us continue the important work of the Illinois Lyme Association and reach our Lyme Disease Awareness Month Fundraising Goal — $15,000.The mission of the Illinois Lyme Association is to raise awareness of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. ILA provides the public with information and education on protection, prevention and the risk of tick bites. The association works with individuals and families on education and support of the treatment of Lyme disease and also works with health professionals and researchers to accomplish their goals.
