Our fundraiser of the week is Mark Cockburn, who is attempting to cycle 100 miles to raise money for us and awareness of M.E.
By taking place in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, a cycle route which stretches from London to Surrey and will be held on July 30 and July 31, Mark has already raised a fantastic £852 for us.
“Sadly it's an invisible illness and it's not obvious to others” Mark said. “My sister lost a very close friend who sadly passed away at a young age due to this horrific illness. My own mother suffers from it and continues to fight bravely against the illness every single day. This is a huge personal challenge to a 46 year old 17 stone lump. So please, if you’re able to donate no matter how little it will be gratefully and thankfully received.”
