Lyme Disease Awarenes Month Walk in Wyoming
Minnesota and Wisconsin are in the Top Ten states of the US, for tick borne illnesses. The two states are considered “endemic areas”. Lyme is alive and right now ticks are biting and infecting people.
Governor Tim Pawlenty signed a proclamation declaring May as Lyme Disease Awareness Month in Minnesota.
This weekend a 5K run walk is taking place in Chisago County to raise awareness about the disease. The Sunrise Trail in Wyoming will be the site of the Minnesota Lyme Action Support Group 3rd Annual Lyme disease 5K Walk/Run. The race kicks off at 10 a.m, with registration at 9 a.m. More details can be found at mlasg.com.
Most cases of Lyme disease can be treated and cleared with a proper diagnosis and immediate antibiotics. Prevention is the key.
