Can you imagine?
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It?s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
It's hard to believe another year has rolled around and we are getting ready to participate in the 2016 MS walk here in Peterborough. The walk is taking place this year at St. Pete's high school on the 29th of May.
This Spring marks my 14th year anniversary of being diagnosed with MS and participating in the walk (It's hard to believe). Ill be honest and as you all know life sometimes gets so busy you forget whats important and this year it was hard for me to get motivated to start fundraising (hence this late massage) and do the walk but my kids and a good friend kicked my butt and well here's the message. :)
Last year The Fisher Clan raised $3300 bring the "A" Team total to $4010 (thanks to the addition to the Stinson Clan and their fundraising efforts). We are hoping to match or surpass that goal! Your donation, support and encouragement is greatly appreciated. If you would like to join our team and walk with us we would love to see you! There are yellow "A" Team shirt for all who come to be worn - Last year we won best dressed!
A future without MS
I've registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Walk has been a critical part of the MS Society's fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
I am part of the MS Walk because I believe we will end multiple sclerosis - with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
