Walk, Run or Roll, I’m taking part!
My friends and I are raising money for the Sydney MS Walk Run + Roll on the 15th of March. You were amazingly generous last year and helped my team Still Smyelin raise more than $12000. We finished up as the third highest fund raisers in the state.
My hope is to try to better that number this year so every bit helps. The money goes to a fantastic group called MS connect. They help MSers around Australia thrive. I can speak from first hand experience of the invaluable support they’ve provided me. I can say for sure that I wouldn’t be working if it weren’t for the help of their Employment Support Services.
We want to make sure that these services continue to be available to all MSers for free when they need them. And the best and easiest way is to donate to our fundraising effort.

What is multiple sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and often debilitating disease which attacks the central nervous system (the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves). It is the most common neurological disease in young adults and often attacks people at the time of their lives when they are planning families and building a career.
On average more than 10 people are diagnosed with MS every week.
The average age of diagnosis is between 20 and 40 years of age, although symptoms may begin much earlier, and three out of four people living with multiple sclerosis are women.
No two cases of multiple sclerosis are identical and the severity and progression of the condition cannot be predicted.
Multiple sclerosis attacks the central nervous system (the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves).
Symptoms of multiple sclerosis include extreme fatigue, blurred vision and balance issues.
Multiple sclerosis is a lifelong disease for which their is no known cure...yet.
1 in 3 Australians will be directly impacted through a diagnosed family member, friend or colleague.
