About this event

The London Marathon is a huge opportunity, and a world famous event.

Team Action for M.E. will be there in 2021 to raise awareness of M.E., and funds in support of our vital work, so why not sign up and help us make a genuine impact on the lives of children, young people and adults with M.E.

  • an Action for M.E. branded running vest,
  • free fundraising materials,
  • regular team updates and support from our dedicated fundraising team,
  • the knowledge that you'll be helping to make a real difference to the people we support.

In exchange for your registration fee and a commitment to raising a minimum sponsorship of £1,600, you'll have a place on a team that's dedicated to making a real and positive difference to people throughout the UK.

M.E.

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a chronic, neurological condition affecting an estimated 250,000 men, women and children in the UK. M.E. affects all aspects of a person’s life. For some this means giving up work, time with friends or for children and young people, missing out on an education, friends and the joys of growing up. One in four people with M.E. are house or bed bound - their struggle often invisible to the outside world.

Despite the life stealing effects of their condition, people with M.E. continue to experience ignorance, injustice and neglect. Research into the condition remains seriously underfunded, and large areas of the UK contain no specialist services at all.

The difference you can make

As part of team Action for M.E., you'll be helping raise the funds so badly needed for better services, greater awareness and vital biomedical research into the causes and symptoms of M.E. Our fundraising team will also be on hand to help you plan your fundraising!

Please note: These are not guaranteed charity places. All applicants will be required to fill out an application form, which will be sent on redemption of a ticket.

We typically receive more applications than we have places available and are unable to offer a place to everyone who applies. Once the deadline for applications has passed we'll choose our team and be in touch to say whether or not we're able to offer you a place.

If you would prefer a paper application form please contact the fundraising team on 0117 927 9551 or email fundraising@actionforme.org.uk.

All Action for M.E. London Marathon places are provided in exchange for a £100 registration fee and a commitment to raising a minimum fundraising total of £1,600.
