We (Sharon Price and Gareth Williams), aka Team Shareth, are taking on the challenge of doing a Sponsored Swim of 5 miles between us (not all in one day!) in aid of the Welsh Association of ME and CFS Support (WAMES).
I (Sharon) have volunteered with this charity for many years and greatly valued the support it gave me during 20 years of chronic ME. Now with my symptoms currently in remission, I want to help those with this unbearable illness.
Without much-needed funds, WAMES will struggle to continue all its important work. This is why we ask you to sponsor Team Shareth as we endeavour to swim 5 miles. (Two years ago I could only swim 100m!) Any amount, large or small, would be greatly appreciated and make a massive difference. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
