Our fundraiser of the week is Alice Jones, who ran the Sydney Half Marathon for us in two hours and 22 minutes!
Alice decided to raise money for us in aid of her little sister El, who has been living with M.E. for five years.
Alice said: “Five years ago El became extremely unwell with the condition, being bed-bound and off school for the majority of her Year Nine school year. As her sister I just wanted to be able to help her but what made it worse was that it seemed like there was no way her condition could be treated.
“The research into M.E is ongoing and Action for M.E helps to fund pilot research projects to advance our understanding of the condition as well as working with professionals to improve the care and treatment that sufferers can receive.
“Hopefully, by raising money for this charity, I can help people, like El, get the treatment and advice that they need to make their life with M.E that bit easier.”
You can support Alice via her JustGiving page.
