Take Part in the #SockIttoMECFS Challenge!

You can help spread ME/CFS awareness and raise vital funds for ME/CFS progress through the Sock It to ME/CFS Challenge.
The Bateman Horne Center, a world-class center of excellence for ME/CFS and FM, is dedicated to the identification and diagnosis of patients, to bringing well-qualified patients into cutting-edge research, and to the swift advance of progress. Donations fund the programs we put on and the outreach we lead in order to make this a reality.
The Sock It to ME/CFS Challenge is simple and fun!

  • Wear the wildest and wackiest pair of socks you can find – to work, the grocery store, a meeting, the gym, church. Roll that pant leg up – don’t be shy!
  • Shoot a brief video or take a picture of yourself out and about in your wild socks
  • Challenge no less than 5 of your friends to do the same AND to make a donation to the Bateman Horne Center to advance understanding and treatment of ME/CFS!
    • $5 if they take the challenge; $50 if they don’t
    • Tell them why it is important to you and share a bit about ME/CFS
  • Share your video/picture on social media with the hashtag #SockItToMECFS #SockItToFM and/or #SockItToMECFSandFM as well as #BatemanHorneCenter

The challenge is set to end at the close of this year — so let’s wear those wacky socks, everyone!

  1. The flip-side of the #MillionsMissings’ empty shoes is the person in wild socks. Speak out in your own wild way with a WILD SOCKS video. Wear wild socks in support of biomarker research!

  2. Blue is a good theme also for MAy 12th ME awareness day, but recommend people leverage this 24/7/365 with Blue porch lites, blue ribbons for mailboxes, doors, or streamer on car, blue ME awareness bumper stickers, place on blue lights for holidays, and leave them up until NIH fully funds a cure for M.E. at $200M per year.
