I'm 50km this month to leave MS behind
Support my challenge to leave MS behind!
I’m taking part in The May 50K challenge this May to raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis!
MS strikes young people in the prime of their lives. The average age of diagnosis is only 30 years old, and there is no known cure.
While having a follow up MRI to track my fight with MS this morning I made the decision to complete the 50km this May.
This may not seem like much walking through an entire month however one of the cruel things about MS is that what used to be an easy task can be something that takes all your energy and all the support around you to complete. I'm lucky that at this stage and with my treatment, walking 50km through a month won't be impossible, but that doesn't mean I won't be reaching out for a little help along the way.
This will not just be a May 50k for myself but a social 50k. One of the more amazing things through my diagnosis was the support from friends and family while I was waiting on test results or just sitting bored in hospital rooms. So if you need to get out of the house for a short walk, chase the kids around the park or walk your adorable puppy, reach out and I will be your walking buddy.
My plan for the final weekend of May is to finish the last few kms walking to a cafe/restaurant/pub and sitting down for a well deserved meal.
Please make a donation and support my challenge to leave MS where it belongs, behind us.
Your donation will support research into the prevention, treatment and finding a cure for multiple sclerosis to change lives.
