NO ONE SHOULD FACE MS ALONE!

Can you imagine waking up one day unable to do the everyday things you would usually take for granted? Like not being able to see properly (or at all), unable to get out of bed, walk to the phone to call someone – anyone – or live a life without pain?

All of a sudden, your world has changed.

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and often debilitating disease which attacks the central nervous system (the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves). It is the most common neurological disease in young adults and often attacks people at a time in their lives when they are planning families and building a career. Three out of four people living with MS are women.

With your support, we can allow people living with multiple sclerosis access to vital support services, like MS Connect, MS Peer Support and MS Employment Support Programs. We’ll also be helping bring new treatments closer to reality, investing in repairing myelin damage to restore function that has been lost for people with progressive forms of the disease.

On behalf of over 25,000 Aussies living with multiple sclerosis – THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

One challenge done, one to go

Thursday 25th Aug
Well thank you to the generous support of family, friends and colleagues, my challenge to raise more money than ever before has been achieved and I am in awe of the generosity of so many people!  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Now I just need to achieve the next challenge I gave myself and run the 21.1km on Sunday morning!  And despite all the training I have been doing the past 3-4 months, I am still nervous!  But I will just get out there and do the best I can and think of some of the messages people have given me when I find it tough and hopefully I will get to the end with a smile on my face (rather than a grimace 😂🤣)

Thank you everyone for your support - it means A LOT I can tell you!

Running to support people with MS

Monday 13th Jun
This year I am looking forward to running in the MS half marathon event and challenging myself in two ways. 

My first challenge is to raise more money than ever before for people with MS.  This is going to be a tough ask given the current financial climate we are all facing. 

My second challenge is to once again run the half marathon.  I can run the 10kms relatively easily, I do it most Sunday mornings, but can I take this ageing body and push it once again to run for more than 21 kms? 🤔

We shall see I guess...  But taking on these challenges will help me get through the winter, just like running got me through the lockdowns of the past two years and have contributed to keeping me healthy physically and mentally. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
