Walk with M.E. reaches half way point

July 21, 2021

Walk with M.E. is officially half way through. Teams have been counting their steps and gathering sponsorships for 50 days, and have already raised a fantastic £2,480.

What’s more, every penny raised by our incredible fundraisers is going to be doubled by a generous family trust, so their efforts will have double the impact. You can stay up to date with how well the fundraising is going on our JustGiving page.

We’ve got 15 teams signed up and some really great team names, such as 'The Mighty Endeavour Clan', 'The Suffolk Crafters' and 'The ME-Anderers'. A special shout out to team 'It’s All About M.E.', who have raised nearly £1,000.

Team 'Walking for Hannah' is made up of friends Emily, Emily and Sian, who are walking in honour of their friend Hannah who has M.E.

They said,

“Hannah has lived with M.E. for a number of years now and we are so proud of her continuing to fight each day. Although she is unable to participate herself, Hannah’s resilience continues to amaze us, so we are walking for you Han, keep going, stay strong and we hope we can all see you again soon.”

Walk with M.E.: the story so far

Since 2018, our annual Walk with M.E. fundraiser has brought teams together to count one million collective sponsored steps over 100 days. Created by fantastic fundraiser, Natalie, Walk with M.E. usually runs earlier in the year and finishes on M.E. Awareness Day, but this year we’re doing things a little differently due to the national lockdown. Instead, Walk with M.E. began on Tuesday 1 June and will run until Wednesday 8 September, allowing more people to take part and to (hopefully) enjoy some sunshine while they get their steps in.

If you’re keen to see updates about our Walk with M.E. teams, you can follow the Action for M.E. Facebook page, or check back here in August for an update.
