London Crawling, 10 May 2008. [Apr. 18th, 2008|08:25 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

The National Fibromyalgia Association of the US is hosting a walk to raise funds and awareness on 10 May this year. juliann is organising a London version on the same day. Here's the blurb:

London Crawling is a pub crawl through the West End of London on the evening of Saturday 10 May 2008. We're going to walk our 5km (hopefully, fingers crossed!) but take regular breaks to sit down, rest and perhaps have a half. (Alcohol not required, indeed not recommended for many on certain pain medications!) It's social but socially conscious all in one! We'll also be pointing out things which are hazards to the mobility impaired along our route, for those who have never had cause to notice such things before.

I will be going along! If you are in London, will you come too? You can either be an official Virtual Participant[0], which costs $35 (join and pay here), or you can just come along and hang out with us and maybe make a donation.

[0] Virtual since we're not in California, where the main walk is happening.

Further details, and a link for making online donations, are on Juliann's journal (she's organising this, not me). Exact details of the route will emerge at some future point, once there has been research into suitably-accessible pubs in the area.

Given that I'm getting baptised the following day, I shan't be attending - but all the best to those who do.

Hurrah, thank you! I can see it must have gone through because it's in the team totals (my entry fee plus Juliann's entry fee and donations fall short of the team total, so the difference must be due to you). The website is not the greatest ever. I had a bit of trouble signing up in the first place.
