I did the MS Walk in 2011 when I was first diagnosed.
2017 is twenty years since my first episode. (20!)
It's time to bring it and show this disease who is boss!
The 2011 walk was a moving experience. And it felt good to be giving towards an organization pushing to make change and to try and help people like me. I wanted to raise funds, to do the little bit that I could to help bring visibility and the face of someone you know to this illness. To share my reality... as each of us with MS has a very different reality.
I haven't walked the last few years as walking has become a larger and larger issue for me. I could not walk the distance .. and I was frustrated, and sad, and sure... angry. I've now got access to a new tool to help me move differently. To help me get back to walking and moving and being a part of society and my neighbourhood once again. And I will be doing the MS Walk again in 2017 with the help of my <a href="https://ca.thealinker.com" title="The Alinker" target="_blank">Alinker</a>.
Why I’m walking to end MS
Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. Every day three more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure.
Your support means Canadian families who are affected by this disease do not have to face MS alone.
When you donate to my fundraising efforts for the MS Walk, your funds are invested into research to find the cause and cure for the disease, while providing services to Canadians with multiple sclerosis and their families.
Thank you in advance for joining the fight to end MS.
