Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. In 3 weeks time I will be going up Ben Nevis; not via the usual tourist track but by taking on a more challenging Scenic Route; "Ben Nevis by the Carn Mor Dearg Arete". This walk is 17.5 km long with 1506m ascent and is estimated to take 10-11hours. We will traverse an exposed, rocky ridge, before climbing to the top of the Ben then will descend via the tourist track. This is far more challenging than anything else I have done. I am kindly asking for a little encouragement through donation to my chosen charity. Sadly, I just learned about ME recently through a close friend. I cannot even imagine what they have been through in the past 5 years.
"In some the effects may be minimal but in a large number, lives are changed drastically: in the young, schooling and higher education can be severely disrupted; in the working population, employment becomes impossible for many. For all, social life and family life become restricted and in some cases severely strained. People may be housebound or confined to bed for months or years."
ME is underfunded and underdiagnosed in many cases so I am hoping that this will give the charity some social media exposure and much needed funds towards making a difference.
