London Marathon 2017 - your chance to support our work

July 26, 2016

Applications are still open for Action for M.E.’s 2017 London Marathon places.

Our team in 2016 raised an incredible total of £26,600. We’re reliant on our fundraisers who help to make everything we do possible, and London is a chance to not only raise the money we need to go on supporting and campaigning on behalf of people with M.E. but also an opportunity to take part in something historic.

This is an event that was first run on 29 March 1981 and has been held every year since. In that time it has been the site of world records, featured some of the world’s greatest runners and is now the world’s largest annual fundraising event.

We understand that for many people running events like these simply aren’t possible. For many of the people we work to support leaving the house some days can be the equivalent of 26 miles through the streets of London, and we wouldn’t expect them to take on a challenge like this. We know that your health must come first.

However if you know anyone who may want to take part, or who has applied for a ballot place and if successful may want to fundraise for us as an own place runner please ask them to get in touch.

Without our fundraisers, none of the work we do or support we offer would be possible.

Applications for the London Marathon are open until September 1. You can contact the fundraising team for more information on 0117 937 6626 or by Email.
