On Sunday 6 October, five members of the NHS Bath specialist paediatric CFS/ME team, based at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases, are organising and taking part in a 19 mile sponsored walk from Bath to Bristol.

Accompanied by friends and family, they are hoping to raise much needed awareness of the condition and of their service, which covers much of the South West of England. Funds raised will go to the Association of Young People with ME (AYME).

It is not expected that patients will take part ,but those who are well enough are welcome to wave the team off, encourage them along the route or join AYME's Chief Executive and welcome them at the finish.
