Our fundraiser of the week is Tom Martin, who is running the Rock ‘N‘ Roll Marathon Liverpool for us next month.
Tom, who has built himself up to being physically active again after many years, said: “I have suffered from M.E for most of my life. The illness first started to affect me when I was 12 years old. At its worst it took over my life and left me so physically exhausted that I needed a wheelchair to leave the house. Thankfully I was able to recover to the point where I can lead a normal life however my day to day life is still affected by the physical and mental tiredness the illness brings.
“It would be great if I could use this opportunity to give something back and to raise a bit of money to fund research into the illness and help fellow sufferers.”
