I'm 100km this month to leave MS behind
Support my challenge to leave MS behind!
Some may not know this about me, but in early 2020 I was diagnosed with Relapsing - Remitting MS. A disease I had very little understanding of.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system, interfering with nerve impulses within the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It is characterised by sclerosis a Greek word meaning scars. These scars occur within the central nervous system and depending on where they develop, manifest into various symptoms.
MS affects over 25,600 in Australia and more than two million diagnosed worldwide. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20-40, but it can affect younger and older people too. Roughly three times as many women have MS as men.
I’m taking part in The May 50K challenge and will be leaving my limits behind to raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis!
Research is the key to changing the future of MS and something I hold close to me. I too have volunteered to take part in various studies through Australian Universities.
Please make a donation to support my challenge!
