Special shout for Sinéad Kearns for setting up the first fundraising page of the new year for Invest in ME Research (IIME Charity) on JustGiving. She wrote: “My amazing friends Amanda and Richard are climbing Kilimanjaro in a few short months (March 16) to raise money for IIME. Whilst I’m not nearly fit or brave enough to do something so fantastic, I’m going to give up alcohol for the whole of January to try and support their cause too. Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.” justgiving.com/kearnsse/
We’ll write more about the Kilimanjaro climb in a later blog, but would like to take this opportunity to thank Sinéad and other friends of Amanda Kayes and Richard Pughe, such as Penny Hunt (who organised a super cycling event last year), for all they are doing in support of Let’s Do It for ME co-founder Paul Kayes, whose story featured in our Movember series of men with myaglic encephalomyelitis (ME).
More news soon, as promised in our 2015 review In with the New.
