Send your ME/CFS story on a 240-km journey

On Saturday, 7 May 2016, Mike Sutton will begin a 240-km (150-mi) journey along the Camino del Norte to raise awareness and generate more funding for ME/CFS.
Mike is dedicating each day of the ten-day walk to an ME/CFS sufferer, using the hike as a platform to tell their story, share a picture of them during the walk that day, and help show the world that just because governments aren’t taking this illness seriously doesn’t mean it isn’t serious.  Sutton hopes that the hike will raise awareness and generate funding for ME/CFS.
If you are interested in making your story part of Mike’s journey:

  • Contact Mike and answer a few questions about your ME/CFS experience
  • On the day dedicated to you, he will share a picture of you ‘with’ him on the walk; you’ll need to download a special app for this on an Android phone
  • He will put up a page with the image and a description of your ME/CFS experience; you are invited to make any changes you want

Mike hopes through his efforts, he can ensure that this very human illness has a human face.
Contact Mike by visiting his blog entry I’m Going for a Walk and leaving him a comment to let him know you are interested.  Act fast to ensure your story is heard; Sutton starts his walk in just one week!
