Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

OK so this is a bit of a mad idea but we've decided to try to visit all 92 football league grounds in the UK (as of season 2013/2014) in 92 hrs to raise money for Invest in ME and more specifically to help fund the trial in the UK for Rituximab.

Rituximab has already proved successful in other countries in improving the lives of ME sufferers by up to two thirds.  This is a major breakthrough and could be enough to help those affected into leading normal lives, getting back to work and more.

We all know people who have suffered from this illness and it's mind-boggling how so many other diseases are now treatable but so little appears to be known about ME.

Anyway it's a logistical nightmare of a trip which split across 5 days will see us probably tackle the South West, London, East Anglia/E.Mids, West Mids and North West and finishing up in the North East.  It's going to take some stellar driving and superb navigation as well as some hearty service station sustenance, cheap B&B's and lots of Red Bull but we're confident we can pull it off.

It's not a physical one which is unusual I guess but we will be aiming to have a very brief kickabout at each ground and of course that all important photo (with Invest In ME flag and ground sign in background). We'll be doing a tour diary and hopefully will try and get the local press involved to get the sponsorship up.

Anything you can donate is massively appreciated, times are tight and we're not looking to pressure people.  Whatever you can spare will help Invest In ME bring the trial to the UK and could change thousands of people's lives, including our good friend Ian's.
