IM TAKING PART IN THE 50K IN MAY CHALLENGE TO FIGHT MS!!

Hello Family and friends!

I’m taking part in the Kiss Goodbye MS - May 50K challenge to help raise funds and awareness for life-changing medical research into multiple sclerosis and finding a cure!

For those who I have not spoken to about this, around two years ago my wife Marissa was diagnosed with MS and even though fortunately enough it was found early, it really has shaken our world. It has challenged my family and me personally both mentally and physically like nothing else, and at times, has taken its toll.

Marissa suffers from chronic migraines, severe daily fatigue and sore muscles and joints, and that's just the start of it. For me to have to watch her go through this on a near daily basis is extremely hard and upsetting to watch, feeling pretty much absolutely helpless. This is also especially the case for our two amazing daughters, who have to also see and watch their mum in regular pain and discomfort, even though Marissa and I try our hardest to put a smile on our faces, and to try not let them see what she really feels inside.

Having said that, Marissa is a warrior! she is a true fighter and our family are fighters and fight we will, never giving up and now instead of letting it get us down and depressed, standing up to it and pushing back and saying F- YOU!! You want a fight.. a fight you will get!

Although it is a 50k walk or run, being the ELITE athlete that I am... (lol) I have a goal of running 500 kms for the month of May! Yes... sounds a little crazy, but a goal I really want to achieve. This works out to be just over 16kms per day for 31 days, so training has already well and truly commenced to achieve this, I believe I can, and I believe I will!

I ask for your support, to help raise funds to donate to this fantastic organisation, so that we cannot only help Marissa, but others who are also living with this disease.

Team "Myelin Magic" have a goal of a $5,000 figure, but I reckon together, we can smash this to pieces..!!

Thanks for your time, we really appreciate your support.

Regards,

Peter Fiacchi.

Hi Peter I am sorry to find out about Marissa's condition. I wish you and her all the courage to cope with it. Your 500km challenge is awesome (and hugely daunting for someone as unfit as me!). I hope your 'previous' as an elite footie star will help and wish you all the best. I hope our small contribution helps. Best Sohail
