Walk for ME 2016

Team photo

Welcome to Walk for ME 2016! The idea behind Walk for ME is that friends and family of an ME sufferer do a sponsored walk on their behalf, hence the name Walk for ME or Walk for me. Although in recent years people have also done runs, swims and rides so you can do any event you wish!

It is hoped that as many friends and loved ones as possible will do a sponsored walk or other event during ME Awareness week which runs from 9th May to 15th May 2016 although you can also do a walk at any other time if you prefer!

Walk for ME has had walkers across England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Isle of Man, France, Spain, New Zealand, Malaysia and both coasts of America. Wherever you are we hope you will get involved!

We hope this will be a fun but poignant event. Family and friends can choose to walk any distance. It could be 1 mile, 5 miles, 10 miles or whatever feels appropriate. The whole idea is that the friend or family member is doing something that their loved one would love to be able to do but can't. We really hope that by doing this on their behalf and raising sponsorship money it will help raise awareness of this debilitating illness.

Walk for ME 2016 is again supporting Invest in ME and ME Research UK. For more information please visit our website www.walkforme.co.uk
