Our fundraiser of the week is Danny O'Donnell, who is taking part in the Great North Run 2017 for us.
Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne on September 10, the 13.1 mile Great North Run route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the Tyne Bridge. From there runners will travel through Gateshead to South Shields while being entertained by bands and urged on by the thousands of supporters who show up to cheer them on.
Danny decided to raise awareness of M.E. and funds for Action for M.E. because his wife lives with the illness.
If you're interested in supporting Action for M.E.'s work by taking part in this event or other ones throughout the year, please visit our Make a Difference page.
You can also support Danny via his JustGiving page.
