Climb the Wrekin with ME
Maralyn Hepworth, who has M.E., set herself a tough challenge to climb the Wrekin and raise awareness of M.E./CFS, and to help raise funds for the Shropshire M.E. Group.
Climbing the Wrekin for most people would be a walk in the park, or on the hills in this case. But, if you suffer with M.E./CFS, just walking up and down the stairs can be a major effort, often with chronic pain and debilitating exhaustion for days afterwards.
So this was no simple Monday morning stroll for Maralyn!
We are delighted that Maralyn found enough strength and determination to reach The Wrekin summit, along with an army of supporters and fellow fundraisers.
Well done Maralyn!
