Our fundraising campaign Walk with M.E. was created in 2017 by our fundraiser Natalie, who has M.E. Read her inspiring story here.
Walk with M.E. is a team sponsored walk, with each team member contributing as many steps as they are able towards a single goal.
That goal is one million steps in 100 days, starting Thursday 1 February until M.E. Awareness Day on Saturday 12 May, the whole time raising as much as possible towards a grand team fundraising total.
If you have moderate or mild M.E., having a team around you will mean you can do as many or as few steps as your health allows. All steps are added to one total, achieved as a team. Great news for 2018 is that the money you raise in sponsorship will be doubled thanks to a generous family trust.
If you have a friend, family member, colleague or anyone else you know that's affected by M.E. you can take part in honour of them. Your team can walk in honour of somebody who, if severely affected, may not even be able to manage one step as a way of raising vital funds and recognising the value of those from whom the condition has taken so much.
Team totals raised in honour of others are also doubled this year, thanks to a generous family trust.
