Fibro and my Anglia’s The Fibromyalgia Coast to Coast Challenge!

Rebecca Wass, who has suffered with FM for over 16 years, has organised some friends from Norwich, East Anglia, to form the team 'Fibro and my Anglia's. The challenge is to cover 192 miles covering peaks, moors and streams by foot power from one side of the country to the other in less than 11 days.  This is a major challenge for any able and healthy person but one that Rebecca will find incredibly difficult but she knows her Anglian friends will help her cross the finishing line. 

Rebecca covered the length of the country as The Twix Tea Lady cycling from Lands End to John O Groat’s handing out tea and biscuits to raise money for Have a Heart and to raise awareness of FM whilst winning a world record.  She is now going to attempt to cover the width of the country whilst raising money for FMA UK, but this time she is leaving the two wheels behind! 

Rebecca and her team of walkers want to raise awareness of FM whilst also giving hope to sufferers around the UK, that even with this illness you can improve your health with managed diet, exercise and positive thinking, although Rebecca would not necessarily recommend walking for 192 miles! 

 Andrew Osborne, who is joining the team on the walk, said:

 “I'm doing this walk with Rebecca to raise money and awareness of fibromyalgia, lots of people are affected by it to varying degrees, I currently live with Rebecca and have seen the impact this illness has on her daily life although she won't complain and puts on a brave face even when she is still in pain. I know that more research would give her and others who suffer hope for a cure in the future.
