Fundraiser of the week: David Furness

August 31, 2018

Our fundraiser of the week is David Furness. David has chosen to run the Great North Run 2018 for Action for M.E. because of his personal experience with the illness.

David said “I was at university at the time studying Chemistry and was no longer able to attend. I was unable to do normal daily activities due to the crippling fatigue. Over the course of a year I went from only being able to get out of bed, to being able to walk for 5mins a day and to be able to return to university. This was still a struggle form me. I did however complete my degree.

Many people with CFS/M.E. have not been able to make this recovery and can be left unable to care for themselves.

I have had so much support from my friends and family over the years. I am so grateful for their help."

We’d like to thank and congratulate David for already passing his fundraising target and we wish him the best of luck for his run.

You can support David via his JustGiving page.
