Description

Join Action for M.E. for the Great Birmingham Run 2017 and help raise funds and awareness for a little understood, life stealing Neurological condition affecting approximatly 250,000 men, women and children in the UK.

The deadline for places is 3 October 2017. Please allow time before the deadline for us to register you with the event organisers.

In exchange for a guaranteed charity place we ask for a £20 registration fee, and a commitment to raising a minimum of £200.

All team members will receive a free running vest, a fundraising pack, support and advice from our fundraising team and will also have the support of their fellow team members through virtual meetups and social media.

For more information contact the fundraising team on 0117 937 6626 or by email.

If you have your own place and would like to fundraise to help stop M.E. stealing lives then our fundraising team are happy to support you every step of the way! Just register for an own place ticket and we'll be in touch.

What is M.E.?

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems.

People with M.E. experience severe, persistent fatigue associated with post-exertional malaise, the body’s inability to recover after expending even small amounts of energy, leading to a flare-up in symptoms. For a quarter of people, their symptoms are so severe they leave them house or bedbound sometimes for years at a time.

As of yet there is no cure for M.E. and little is known about the causes or underlying biology of this condition.
