During the last few months, I have been pretty good about following a regular exercise program (rowing and treadmill, at home). This has been not only to combat my occupational hazard of being a brewer but also to push back against MS which I was diagnosed with in my 50s.
On Sunday May 5, I’m participating in the Collingwood MS Walk and I’m going to try to complete the longer route. I’m doing this to raise awareness and financial support for research into MS to help those who are less fortunate than me in the way that this disease has affected their lives.
Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world, and on average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable illness every day. We don’t know what causes MS, and we don’t have a cure. Yet.
When you make a donation to my fundraising, you are helping continue this incredible work.
Thank you for supporting our MS Walk community. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your support.
