Push It for ME Research – 11 Sep 2011
Posted by rachelcreative on August 4, 2011
I’m asking for your help with Push It for ME Research.
Push It is a 10k fundraising wheelchair push/walk for ME Research on Sunday 11 Sep 2011 in Lichfield, Staffordshire, UK.
My condition means I can’t run a marathon or do a skydive to fundraise. So on Sunday 11th September 2011 a team of volunteers will push me in my wheelchair over a 1o km (6.2 miles) route around Lichfield. Some will walk the full distance, others maybe just 1km (3/4 mile).
Sitting in the wheelchair while being pushed might not sound like hard work for me it’s actually going to be a huge effort on my part. Due to ME/CFS I am mainly housebound and when I do go out it requires careful planning or my condition can be worsen very easily.
I hope you’ll join me on my adventure and help me raise money for ME/CFS research.
You can donate online or in the UK text “PUSH 50 £5″ to 70070 (you can choose any amount up to £10 per text donation).
