My Progress

I'm 100km this month to leave MS behind

My Progress


My Target


Support my challenge to leave MS behind!

This is my third year taking part in the May 50k. As a kid, I raised money through the MS read-a-thon. I even turned my push bike into a bi-plane and raised over $1000 in a ride-a-thon! 

I first met Adriana taking pole dancing (you read right!) classes. I only recently met my cousin Matty. Both these vibrant people have MS - and it sucks. 

This invisible disease is life altering and obviously not in a positive way. MS strikes people normally before their 40th birthday - in their prime. It’s past time that these beautiful people had an improved quality of life and this is my tiny way of acknowledging the difficult and painful curve balls life throws at you on a daily basis. 

If you’ve read this far - thank you. If I raise $1000 then I will walk 150kms... that’s my challenge to you!! 

Please make a donation to support my challenge.

Thank you to my Sponsors
