#SockItToME 2021

Seacliff Primary students to wear crazy socks in support of their former teacher, Mardi Angus, who now has ME/CFS.

We are delighted that the Seacliff Primary SRC (Student Representative Council) has organised a #SockItToME awareness/fundraiser in support of their former teacher, Mardi Angus, who has ME/CFS.

Dr Lucinda Bateman and her team at the Bateman Horne Center in the USA, have worked tirelessly to help those with ME/CFS.

Dr Bateman started the idea of #SockItToME in January 2016.

I vow to wear wild socks until useful biomarkers are discovered.

ME/CFS SA felt that crazy socks would be an appealing way to raise awareness of ME/CFS amongst children and their families, by inviting local primary schools to participate in #SockItToME since 2016.
