My target 10 kms
Anyway, here are the revised challenges for the 2020 MS Walk, Run, + Roll!
I'm going aviking to defeat MS!
I have two sisters with Multiple Sclerosis. My grandfather died in his 30's from complications caused by MS. I also have MS.
Ten years ago, in 2010, I joined the MS Walk, Run, + Roll with my siblings and family. Our goal was just to raise a few hundred dollars and have a day out together. The following year, we did it again.
In 2012, I decided to try and raise a little more and put a few challenges for myself out there. If I raised over $100, I'd do the 5km walk in armour.
I raised $100 in a matter of hours. So I kept adding challenges. Carry weapons and a shield, sing Viking songs, only drink from my drinking horn... Mostly silly Viking themed things. I raised over a thousand dollars and the MS Viking was born.
This year should have been my tenth year doing the MS Walk, Run, and Roll, and my eighth year as the MS Viking. Unfortunately, the event was postponed due to the global pandemic, but now... it's on!
So, I will be setting some challenges again, but instead of two laps around Albert Park Lake along with thousands of other runners, walkers, and rollers, I'll be doing a lap or two around Diggers Rest.
So without further ado, here's the starting challenges for the 2020 MS Walk, Run, + Roll!
$1 – I'll do a 5km walk around Diggers Rest in my red Viking tunic!
$10 – With armour and helmet on!
$20 – Carrying my axe, spear, and shield!
$50 – Blowing warhorn at every kilometre! (Sorry Diggers Rest)
$100 – Drinking only from my drinking horn! (May need some locals to top me up!
$200 – ??? (Give me some ideas!
$500 – ??? (Seriously, no idea is too stupid!)
$750 – ??? (I may be underestimating the stupidity of my friends and family)
$1,000 – 10km walk instead of just 5km!
$1,000,000 - I will arrange a ship to take me and a crew of raiders to the town of Lindisfarne (Tasmania), where we will loot and plunder the town in honour of the first recorded Viking raid of the monastery of Lindisfarne! Now, this is my million dollar challenge every year, but this year Tassie is on high alert for this kind of thing, so it'll be even more of a challenge!
