What's Your M.E. Marathon?

What's your M.E. marathon?

11 October 2016

Our new What’s your M.E. marathon? campaign celebrates people with M.E. who take on personal fundraising challenges that, to them, feel like a marathon - even if no running is involved.

Action for M.E. supporter Rachel Ephgrave’s M.E. marathon wasn’t a marathon at all but that doesn’t mean that, for Rachel, it didn’t take as much or even more effort. Unable to join her friend when she took part in the 100km Race to the Stones event, Rachel was determined to take action to raise money, and came up with her own challenge: walking to a lamp post near her house 100 times.

Rachel completed her challenge over seven months and raised more than £2,000 for Action for M.E. Due to her health some of her walks had to be done in two parts to allow her time to rest. We think Rachel is a marvel, and her strength is an inspiration.

You can watch a video about Rachel's story here.

Whatever challenge you take on to raise awareness or vital funds for us - and you can find inspiration on our What’s your M.E. marathon? page - we want the world to know how important it is. For information, ideas and support, please email or call our fundraising team on 0117 937 6626, or say hello on Twitter using the #myMEmarathon hashtag.
