Mass participation event for disabled people launched in London

July 04, 2016

Action for M.E. has the chance to secure places for Parallel London, a new mass participation event in London designed for people with disabilities, and we’d like to found out if it would be of interest to any of our supporters.

We’ll be clear straight away – these events are not like marathons and we don’t expect many people will be well enough to take part. Entrants can run or walk but can also be pushed in a wheelchair over one of four distances which range from 100m to a maximum of 10km.

The event takes place on Sunday September 4 2016, exactly 4 years after the London 2012 Paralympic Games and the route goes through the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. More information is available on the Parallel London website.

If you or someone you know is interested in taking part please contact the fundraising team as soon as possible so we can secure a place for you, either by email or phone on 0117 937 6626. The registration fee for this event is £25 and we ask people to aim for a minimum fundraising total of £250.

This is just one of several events Action for M.E. has guaranteed places for throughout the year, such 2017 Ride London 100 cycling event, which we still have place available for.
