Event description
M.E. Awareness Week takes place in May. We are holding our awareness event on Wednesday 8th May.

About this Event

ME Foggy Dog is AWESOME!

Foggy has been a globetrotting adventurer since 2014 and is all set to start his next year-long World Tour on May 8th.

We are holding this awareness event to raise awareness of the condition in Portsmouth but to also launch our next global fundraising campaign for M.E. research funding.

There are 600+ M.E. patients in the Portsmouth area. Everybody knows somebody with the condition but very few people actually know what M.E. is.

During this 2019/20 World Tour, Team Foggy will be fundraising for Cure ME (based at the M.E. Biobank - London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). Representatives from Cure ME will be participating in our event by talking about the work Cure ME does and how Foggy's fundraising will be spent.

We will also be talking via Skype to Retha Viviers from the MECFS Foundation South Africa about the challenges faced by patients in South Africa. M. E. is a global health crisis.

ME Foggy Dog Founder Sally will be talking about a range of M.E. related topics.

We don't 'do' boring, so it will be an engaging and informative evening.

Everybody knows somebody with M.E. Come along and show solidarity with the M.E. patient in YOUR life; Whether they are a family member, friend, old school friend or work colleague.

Other stuff-

Doors open at 6pm but the event will start at 6.30pm. The event should finish around 8pm; we have to be out of the building by 8.30pm.

There is parking but it is metered and so is not free. Parking spaces can be found behind the Register Office/Milldam Building.

The lecture theatre is on the ground floor, there is wheelchair access, however, there are steps within the lecture theatre itself. Wheelchair users have space at the back/top of the lecture theatre with an excellent view of the presentation area.
