We are delighted to announce that a generous family trust has offered to match-fund every penny raised by Walk with M.E. – which means everything you raise will be doubled!
Walk with M.E. is a sponsored walk with a twist: everything is done as a team. Starting on Saturday 1 February, team members count their steps for 100 days and add them together to make one grand team total, aiming to reach one million steps between them.
Walk with M.E. was created by Natalie Heron, an Action for M.E. fundraiser who wanted to create an inclusive event for people with M.E., she came up with a team event which allows people with M.E. to work with friends and family to combine their steps over a 100 days. We're really grateful for the hard work put into launching the campaign and for allowing us to continue it and continue raising awareness and funds to support our vital work.

Sharing your experience of M.E. is a powerful way of helping raise awareness of the condition and its impact. It also helps others living with M.E. know that they are not alone. If you are interested in sharing your story on our website, in one of our publications, featuring in one of our campaigns, or being a media case study (someone we contact when a journalist gets in touch, asking to speak to someone affected by M.E.), please just take a couple of minutes to complete our case study form online.
We would never give out your contact details to a journalist without contacting you first to check that it’s OK, and you can stop being a case study at any time just by letting us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0117 937 6626.
