Fundraiser of the week: runner Melanie

Fundraiser of the week: runner Melanie

July 03, 2020

Not one run, not two, but 40 - that's the number of runs our fundraiser of the week, Melanie Alflatt, is aiming to complete for the #GNRSoloChallenge

Melanie is fundraising for her husband, who has had M.E. for more than 20 years, and in loving memory of her best friend, who also had M.E.

"I have seen first hand how M.E. impacts on a person and on their life. M.E. is a life-changing, debilitating, under-recognised, and under-diagnosed illness that takes away the chance to continue normal life. A cause very close to my heart.”

The GNR Solo Challenge launched last month and runs until Sunday 13 September, and Melanie aims to complete 200 miles or "possibly more," in that time.

We’d like to say a huge thank you for Melanie’s fantastic fundraising efforts, already nearly halfway to her £250 target in just a few days! Best of luck with your challenge.
