My Progress

I'm running 50km this month to leave MS behind

My Progress

My Target

50km

Support my challenge to leave MS behind!

I’m taking part in The May 50K. I will be running 50km throughout May and leaving my limits behind to raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis! 

2018 proved to be one challenging year, and rightly so. It was during this period that a number of troubling symptoms lead to a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I am 1 in 25600* Aussies that live with the disease. MS is a chronic neurodegenerative condition of the central nervous system impacting nerve impulses in the brain, spine and optic nerve. Everyone’s experience with MS is different; there is medication to help slow progression but there is currently no cure.

That’s why I’ve made it my mission to help raise funds for vital research, in hope that one day there will be a cure. It my not be in my life time (or it may) but maybe it will be in my childrens lifetime. 

To my fabulous family and friends who have been there over the last 7 months I thank you! You have been there through the highs and lows and allowed me to be my stubborn self! It has been a challenge, it has been an eye opening experience and I count myself lucky. I feel I’ve been given an opportunity to not only focus on what is important to me but to help others. Lets Kiss MS goodbye and show it who’s boss x  

Thank you to my Sponsors
