We fundraise for research for ME/CFS to help patients live life to the fullest


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I want to  raise funds to support research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (I'm fundraising for ME, not "me"! ), because it's a poorly understood, highly debilitating medical condition that affects millions worldwide and receives very little government funding.

It's a cause close to my heart, since my sister Ruth has suffered from it for many years, and so too has a close family friend Emily, who grew up with our kids. They're both amazingly talented people and are doing their bit, so I thought that I should also contribute.

I'm fortunate that my employer, Cadence Design Systems runs a donation matching scheme that will contribute up to an additional $1,000 - as well as giving "Volunteer Time" off work to do the event itself. Thumbs up for this enlightened approach!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
