    Check this new interesting opportunity how to raise money for this important study. Dont hesitate to join it. We can see that NIH is still not up to fund ME research.So it´s up to us to move this research - there is not another way. I think it can be even funny to join this challenge.


    THE STAIR CHALLENGE! Raise awareness and funds for ME/CFS!

    "People are beginning to find ways to fundraise on the ground for Columbia CII. Our team were contacted about this new initiative that also endeavors to increase awareness of ME/CFS and get people outside our community involved. It could be just the sort of activity that many might be very keen to tackle…

    How many of us remember the days of being able to exercise – and miss it dearly!

    Millions of people at varying degrees of illness severity struggle to do physical things. Some people with ME/CFS barely have the strength to feed themselves or sit up in bed.

    So many struggle maintaining a sitting upright position for long, doing basic activities of daily living like showering, cooking, or going out to get groceries. This doesn’t take into account the cognitive difficulties and many other common symptoms. This new challenge, however, seeks to highlight a key problem with exertion and energy for people with ME/CFS, in a way that can also spark conversation about other difficulties so many with the illness face daily."

    Do you have family or friends that would be keen to take up the challenge for a good cause? Do you know a sports team or local society that would want to do this for fun?
