    I was going to post this after May 2. Money will go towards ME/CFS too and in a very promising way. I spoke to someone in his office a month ago. I don't remember the exact details of what she said and wanted to talk to her again before I posted this so the information would be more precise. I'll see if I can get hold of her this week to get more information.

    Please designate #3. Team RIGGS if you can donate. https://act.ucsd.edu/mitowalkandroll5k/add
    It's the ME/CFS team.

    The form is quite confusing. Does it ask for payment details after you click continue?

    Hi,@hixxy. It is confusing regarding donations. I was led to believe this was the form but may have it wrong. Maybe there's another form or way for donations.

    I'm not sure if it asks for payment details after you click continue. I hope so.

    I'll try to get more details this week.

    Hi, Everyone. The run is this weekend. The funds support Dr Naviaux's mitochondria clinic. This lab is planning a lot of big things and like all labs needs more funding. Supporting mitochondrial research is supporting us. His focus is on helping us.

    Please if you can, donate to #3. Team RIGGS:
    https://act.ucsd.edu/mitowalkandroll5k/add
    It's the ME/CFS team.

    If you don't want to donate to Team Riggs in the race, because you want to make sure your donations goes only specifically to ME/CFS research here's the link to his lab, then click on ME/CFS research:

    http://naviauxlab.ucsd.edu/support/

    Or go directly to ME/CFS research to make your donation:

    https://giveto.ucsd.edu/make-a-gift?id=e2a3be2f-0160-4994-8eab-9d1fe4394cb9

    Thank you for doing what you can, if you can, and getting others to donate too if you are able! :)

    Hi, Everyone. An edit to the above. Just found out today is the last day to register for the run or to donate to Team Riggs (ME/CFS team). https://act.ucsd.edu/mitowalkandroll5k/add

    You can still donate to Dr. Naviaux's research anytime for mitochondrial diseases or specifically for ME/CFS. :thumbsup: His lab is planning big things to help us.
