Western hoedown helps raise awareness

Nigel Thom is a volunteer with the Fibromyalgia Well Spring Foundation and when asked to describe the medical condition, he paused for a few moments before answering.

“If you have ever had a migraine headache, imagine that pain. Now imagine that you’re experiencing that sort of pain in every muscle in your body… all the time.”

Although Thom does not suffer from the condition, he has worked closely with those who do and has made it his life’s passion to help those with fibromyalgia.

Over the years, he has organized and participated in a host of events to raise money for research and to help increase awareness of the illness.

In May of 2016 the organization engaged in an epic walk from Aldergrove to Banff/Canmore. The event spanned more than a month (May 24 to June 29) and the team was understandably proud of their achievement.

“It was a major undertaking for us, but when it was done, it was an incredible sense of accomplishment,” said Thom.

On May 11th of this year, the group hosted their 11th annual Celebration Dinner to raise awareness on National Fibromyalgia Day and, on June 16th they were at the Langley Community days where they manned a information booth.

The group has two events upcoming in Aldergrove, and is enthusiastically preparing to raise even more funds and, more importantly, spread awareness of the condition.

Between July 20 and 22 they will be at the Aldergrove Festival Days (beside the Aldergrove Community Secondary School) where they will be engaging the community and enjoying the festival as well.
