Help Ramsay Research Fund to fund more biomedical research than ever before.

Biomedical research into M.E.is seriously underfunded. We need to do more if we are to learn how and why this cruel illness starts - how to test for it or treat it, or better still, how to cure it.

Story

The Tandem Tart Challenge   

The time trial season is just about finished and what another incredible season we've had.  A further 14 Partners have joined the 'Tart Club' and if all goes to plan, I will be riding with two more in December.  These will be Christmas Specials.

My fundraising campaign has been up and running for 2 1/2 years now and with any luck, we will hit the £9,000 mark by the end of the year thanks to your generosity. All your donations are being used for research purposes only.  I fear that a cure may not be found in my lifetime but an early diagnosis and support is so important.  I do believe that current research projects are coming ever closer to making this a reality.   

I achieved my goal of riding a 50 miler this year bringing my ultimate goal of riding a 12 hour time trial on the tandem again ever closer.  That is what I am aspiring to achieve.  A pretty big goal for some people but as a seasoned endurance cyclist, a challenge that I have met on many occasions in the past.

The difference now is that I am living with ME.

Please help me to raise £12,000 for the ME Associations Ramsay Research Fund so that one day we will find a cure.  Thank you.
