We fund biomedical research into ME to create a strategy for cure/treatment

Story

Hi and thanks for taking the time out to visit our page. During ME Awareness Month in May we will be taking our two dogs, Taylor and Loki for a "Walk for ME".

We are visiting Glastonbury for a week in May and so have decided to do our fundraising walk there. We are keen to raise awareness and funds for Invest in ME Research as they at working hard supporting numerous research projects looking into ME and seeking to find treatments for sufferers to hopefully help them regain strength and improvement in health in the future.

Until the event actually happens we have no idea how far we will be able to walk, and whatever we do will be in stages with breaks throughout.to allow Tonks to rest. This is because due to her ME and Hypermobility EDS along with other health issues she is unable to walk very far in any one go and has to deal with joint pain, swelling and mobility issue.

We will be sure to take photographs of our meandering walk as a record of our day and no doubt follow up with a blog post diary of our day and how far we managed to go.

Please, if you can spare anything at all, no matter how little, it would be enormously appreciated. Sufferers if ME are desperate for treatments to be found to allow them to be able to regain as much of their health and activity as possible.

Thank you for supporting us.

Big love 

Dave & Tonks
