Story

Im running to raise money to help support M.E Research U.K. Although I do not suffer from M.E personally, it has had an immense effect on my brother, Jack. It's a condition that does not get a lot of attention and I want to do my best to raise awareness and help support the charity in their research of the condition.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) or chronic fatigue syndrome is characterised by a range of neurological symptoms and signs. Muscle pain with intense physical or mental exhaustion, relapses, and specific cognitive disabilities.

Around 200,000 people in the UK suffer from ME and most patients are unable to work full-time with up to a quarter of ME patients housebound or bed bound.

Some people may recover quite quickly but many others develop chronic illness lasting for many years.

ME Research UK exists to fund biomedical research into ME/CFS, to find its cause, to develop effective treatments and ultimately to discover a cure. In 15 years, it has funded 38 specific research projects in the UK and overseas.

I will be running the Nottingham Robin Hood Half marathon on the 24th September 2017 to raise money for ME Research UK and would immensely appreciate any donations big or small. Thank you.
