UK Man Wades Through Water To Support ME Sufferers Like Wife Sarah

Sunday 7 August 2016


From the UK's Melbourn Sports Centre and Community Pavilion (via Facebook):


Sarah and Euan
Euan and wife Sarah, who suffers from ME/CFS.


Report written by Euan
21 July 2016

On Sunday 17th July [at the Melbourn Sports Centre] Euan Rintoul undertook a Wading Challenge (on his own) to raise awareness for M.E. (Myalgic Enchephalopathy, otherwise known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and to help the ME Association with fundraising. The target was to wade 6.4km (4 miles) in 4 hours and he managed 7.02km in that time.

Euan’s wading challenge was chosen to try to replicate one of the symptoms that people with M.E. invariably suffer. To help anyone to understand this feeling he invites you to try wading next time you are in a swimming pool, up to the depth of your shoulders, (and keeping your arms out of the water). You will find that, despite your best efforts, you 'get nowhere fast' and it can feel like 'wading through treacle'.

As well as his sponsors, Euan would particularly like to thank Graham and his team of duty managers, life-guards and swim coaches at Melbourn Sports Centre. They were very supportive during Euan’s training and during the challenge itself. Euan would also like to thank the swimmers who kindly kept out of his way so as not to interrupt his wading rhythm, and to those who showed interest in the challenge and knowing more about M.E.
