Peter Amos BUPA Great North Run

Peter Amos has a relative with myalgic encephalomyelitis.  He said:

I'm running in the Bupa Great North Run Sunday 18th of September and want to raise as much money as possible for Let's do it for ME in support of Invest in M.E. and their plans to open a Centre for Biomedical Research into M.E. in East Anglia, the first of it's kind in Europe.

Let's do it for ME is a patient driven initiative in support of Invest in ME and gives great hope to the estimated 250,000 sufferers in the U.K. 25% of whom are severely affected / bed bound. Also for the very many children and teenagers who suffer from this debilitating illness.

Thank you for your generous support,



Peter finished the run in a time of 2.03.49 and has raised £756 so far!

He has asked us to pass on a big thank you to all those who have sponsored him and for all the support and encouraging posts and comments.

Peter's fundraising page on Everyclick remains open until 31st October so there is still plenty of time to donate in support of his achievement.

Thank you so much to Peter and sponsors for doing this for ME!

P.S. When you make a donation, don't forget to check the Gift Aid box if you're a UK taxpayer as then your charity can claim an extra 25% from the government!

*The Let's do it for ME! awareness and fund-raising campaign is run by ME sufferers in close cooperation with the charity Invest in ME. Your donations go directly to Invest in ME towards the UK Centre. See this campaign highlighted on the Invest in ME website here.
