Bath Half Marathon - help us support people who have M.E.

January 03, 2017

Do you know anyone looking to get fit this new year? Are there any runners in your family, your workplace or among your friends willing to help make our work possible in 2017?

Through 2015 – 2016 thousands of people contacted our office asking for guidance and support on all aspects of living with M.E. Among these were people seeking to challenge benefits decisions, looking for social care to help with everyday tasks made impossible by their symptoms, and people newly diagnosed looking for understanding and support in managing a life changing illness.

We want to ensure that in 2017, people with M.E. are not alone in facing the challenges that this condition creates.

To do this we need people willing to fundraise, to help us raise the funds needed to maintain our information and support services, a vital lifeline for thousands affected by M.E.

Action for M.E. has guaranteed places available in the Bath Half marathon, available to anybody willing to run, walk or jog on our behalf. Last year our Bath Half team raised over £1,000 and we’re hoping this year to do even better.

If you know anybody who may be interested, please download an application form from our website or contact the fundraising team on 0117 937 6626 or email fundraising@actionforme.org.uk.

All runners will receive an Action for M.E. running vest and the full support of our Fundraising team.
