    The Aviva Contest is back. Action CIND is competing for $100K for ME/FM research in Canada. Voting is much easier this year. You may cast all 18 votes at one time.

    From Action CIND:

    ** WE NEED YOUR HELP - Please vote today **

    We are trying to raise $100,000 to help Advance Research for ME and FM in Canada via the annual Aviva Community Fund contest. We are supporting the exciting research being done by Dr Patrick McGowan on epigenetics at the University of Toronto. We’re hopeful his research will result in a biomarker that will prove beyond any doubt these are real illnesses and will help in the diagnosis of patients. You can read our submission here https://www.avivacommunityfund.org/voti…/project/view/16-356 .

    The contest has been greatly simplified this year. The daily voting for weeks has been replaced with the ability to cast all 18 votes for our cause all in one simple step. It just takes a few minutes to register and then cast all your votes.

    First you need to go to https://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ and click the register button. You can register with just your email address and a password. They send you an email that you have to click to activate your account. Once activated, go to https://www.avivacommunityfund.org/voti…/project/view/16-356 . There you will find the option to cast all 18 votes at once. Once you cast your vote you’re done!

    If we make it to the finals, we are guaranteed $5000 and a chance to win the $100,000. With your help we’ll be winners.

    If you have any questions let us know. Please LIKE and SHARE this post to increase its exposure in new feeds. We need everyone voting.

    Thank you for your support.

    Is there a leaderboard for this or any other way we can view rankings of votes?

    I am pretty sure National ME/FM Action made the finals and received $5,000. I will check.

    We checked the files. We won $5,000 in 2014 and $5,000 again in 2015 for National ME/FM Action Network.
