Verified by JustGiving
My brother, Ian, and I are taking on a mountainous challenge! We are racing to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and back down - a marathon (26.2 miles / 42 km) in distance.
Please help us to support people with ME and their families.
ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy), or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, blights the lives of 250,000 people in UK today. The smallest exertion can floor them; their joints and muscles ache unbearably; restful sleep eludes them; and ‘brain fog’ clouds their thinking. It changes lives drastically – disrupting study; making work impossible; and straining family relations to breaking point. Many sufferers, including a personal friend who has been suffering for 2 years, cannot leave their homes, or even their bedroom. This is devasting for friends and families, as well as the sufferers themselves. There is no known cure.
Please help raise funds to accelerate research and widen access to support services for those suffering directly, or affected by, this horrible disease.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
