We’re off mobilising for charity – 1 month long Superhero Series challenge

Using my rollator with its seat for those appropriately paced stops we hope to get out of the back lane this time. Last year the pandemic put restrictions on how I could complete the challenge.

Good luck to all in the #Superhero #FindYourPower #charity event

We’re off mobilising for charity for a month long Superhero Series challenge powered by Marvel. This years event has kicked off on 17th July and runs through to 14th August. It is safe to say that we are excited to be taking part in At Home Superheroes again this year. Last year I managed to complete 12.5 km and hope that my superhero partner and I can clock up more this year. Using my rollator with its seat for those appropriately paced stops we hope to get out of the back lane this time. Last year the pandemic put restrictions on how I could complete the challenge.

This year we have joined our Organisation Partners Ataxia and Me, and Trustee Alan Thomas, for the challenge along with Dragon Valley Theatre. Alan who has Ataxia, which is a movement disorder that affects his balance and coordination, will be covering distance on his trike. We are doing this in the name of Rare Disease with Ataxia and Ehlers-Danlos in mind. Here at FibroFlutters I shall be ‘Zebra-Strutting’ my stripes for ZebraStrutters our Rare Disease Advocacy Arm.

We are free to set our own super goal from 100m to 1,000km or more! We can also choose to use our Super Senses to reach our goal. Every single distance we log will go towards our SUPER team’s mission!

Where: Wherever we want! Living room, garden, local park, street, countryside… The choice is ours.

When: We can choose to do our challenge on one day, over a few days or use the whole month!

We’re off mobilising for charity! in the #Superhero #FindYourPower #charity event

All donations shall be split 3 ways between Ataxia and Me, Dragon Valley Theatre and FibroFlutters / ZebraStrutters

We are a Patient Advocacy Organisation & online social media communications network. Our services are for people affected by chronic illnesses and rare disease. This includes care providers, health professionals and those within the medical healthcare related industries. #notjustpatients

Advocating for a Multi-Disciplinary approach to all aspects of medical healthcare.

To help develop, nurture and help to create a multidisciplinary approach to all aspects of medical healthcare so that #chronicillness & #raredisease patients can receive the type of care and treatments that they need.

The work we do involves disease awareness, health awareness, and, helping to point people in the direction of where to get legitimate health communications and information. As well as this we attend events and use patient voice to get important messages to help create better systems and processes for patients.

Bridging the gap between stakeholders is a different type of awareness raising. It involves sharing events and campaigns by clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, patient led projects, healthcare providers… the list is quite variable. We have newsletters to ensue this which uses our slogan – #chronicillnessVOICE for everyone #notjustpatients
