Raising Awareness of Fibromyalgia

By Adam Higgins
This project is using Flexible funding and will receive all pledges made by 8:59am 27th February 2017

Project aim

To raise awareness of Fibromyalgia, an incurable disease that is beginning to affect more and more people of all ages.

My name is Adam Higgins. I am a 30 year old HGV Driver from Chippenham in Wiltshire. I am also a successful racing driver having won multiple championships over 10 years of racing. For 2017 I am moving to a higher level category of racing and see it as a unique opportunity to use the car as a tool to spread awareness to people that are unaware of certain diseases/illnesses. I chose fibromyalgia because it affects more than one person in my family and I believe that not nearly enough people know or understand this disease.

Raising Awareness of Fibromyalgia

I am a British Motor Racing Driver and this year I will be competing in the Michelin Ginetta Supercup held in Britain on the British Touring Car Championship Calendar.

More than one person close to me have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in the last few years. Upon researching it myself, I started to realise just how many people are being affected by this disease.

As it is a fairly new disease to be diagnosed, the symptoms are often misunderstood. One day a sufferer could be absolutely fine, but the next day have a 'flare up' which can render the sufferer bed ridden and in complete agony!

The Championship that I am competing in has a huge following with a combined 20.9 million TV viewers on ITV4 over one year. This combined with a combined 385,000 spectators live at the circuits, means that there is a massive amount of people that see the cars.

My plan is to use the car as a great tool for running an awareness campaign, so that millions of people can become aware of Fibromyalgia.

Donations made will cover a small amount of the costs of running the car to help make sure we reach as many eyes as possible, but with 25% of any donation going directly to FMA UK (Fibromyalgia Action UK) charity.
