Charlotte Snares inspiring fundraising challenges for FMA UK

  • Print

Charlotte Snares has embarked on a number of difficult challenges for FMA UK. The first one was a ‘’rainbow hair’’ challenge when she has coloured her hair in many rainbow colours, as seen on the picture. Fundraising is tough but she doesn’t give up. She told us: ‘’Fundraising has been quite challenging. People sadly have not been that forthcoming with donations. I think the problem is that there is still a major lack of awareness about Fibromyalgia. 

I am not giving up though. I am working on a new challenge for the new year. I am aiming to do a two hour gym session on the 27th of February 201: an hour on the cross trainer and an hour on the bike. This for me is a major challenge with both M.E and Fibromyalgia and a slipped disc in my back. I struggle on a daily basis to get about and sometimes even breathing hurts.

I am raising funds as I was diagnosed with M.E several years ago and have been recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia...although I think I have suffered a lot longer. I have had the symptoms since I was about 11 (now 35) but have struggled with getting diagnosed and supported. I decided to fund raise as I wanted to do something positive and channel some of how I have been feeling into creative projects as a part of healing for me and also helping to raise awareness and funds to help others who are struggling. I will also be offering reiki treatments to raise funds. I will be fundraising for as long as possible’’.
