Not long to go now! The day’s events look great fun, so do please come and see us so we can tell you (once we have our breath back!) what UP is all about and why we are raising money.
In short, UP is all about changing how people and society thinks about pain by delivering the right messages based on the latest science of pain. The widest reach comes via the internet and so we are working on a great website resource for all those who need to understand pain — people suffering, those affected by chronic pain and those delivering the care. We are also raising money to support contemporary research into pain, in particular the use of a practical model that explains pain and provides a way forward for people on a day to day basis.
Chronic pain is the largest global health burden, and most people don’t even know that!
Please come and support us! There are 5 of us running ably supported by Jo and Georgie. Georgie will also be performing with Rock Choir on the main stage.
Follow us on Twitter @upandsing where the hashtag will be #upandrun
