Our story

1ST FEBRUARY TO 12TH MAY 2020

The Walking and Mountaineering Society are fundraising for the Walk With M.E 2020 campaign. Action for M.E is the charity that is running it and where 100% of the donations will be sent.

What is M.E? According to Action for M.E -

"M.E. is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems. M.E. affects an estimated 250,000 people in the UK, and around 17 million people worldwide. People with M.E. experience debilitating pain, fatigue and a range of other symptoms associated with post-exertional malaise, the body and brain’s inability to recover after expending even small amounts of energy..."

The campaign's goal is for each team to reach 1 million steps over a hundred days whilst fundraising for Action M.E. The donations created will help go towards raising awareness of the condition and to help fund important studies. The donations made from each team are doubled by a family trust.
