My #ForkMS Story
What is Multiple Scelrosis?
15months ago, I didn’t even know.
And what I thought I knew about MS, well they were all the things you could find on google...
-Side note: Googling MS is the ONE of the first things my neurologist told me NOT TO DO!!! & boy did I quickly learn that (story to come)
Though out this journey of mine, I have been extremely fortunate enough to have the support of the MS support community here in Melbourne & I could not be more grateful.
& that is why I am doing this event & fundraising my lil bum off- because organisations like this HELP!
If you would like to keep up to date with what the FORK MS team is up to over the next 8weeks please head over and join our FB group: www.facebook.com/groups/forkms/
For the 2021 MS Walk Run + Roll event I will be aiming to complete a 5km run in under 35mins & then Roxy (My year old Spoodle) will be joining me and our #FORKMS team to complete the 5km walk. If you’d like to join in for either (or both- which is allowed on the one ticket) then feel free to join myteam! (Just quietly, I am looking at having thank you drinks then night of for all in the team <3 )
Thank you for visiting my page and reading my blog post.
I hope each & everyone of you have a splendid day that is filled with positive vibes and happiness <3
Walk, Run + Roll, I’m taking part to fight MS!
I am so very excited to be participating in my first (of many) MS Walk Run + Roll fundraising event May 30th 2021!
I’m joining in the MS Walk Run + Roll to make a difference in the lives of people living with multiple sclerosis.
The MS Walk Run + Roll isn’t just a must do event on the cardio calendar, it also helps to raise much needed awareness and work towards helping those who live with this devastating neurological condition.
After all, we’re here together so nobody faces MS alone.
I have challenged myself to complete the 5km run in less than 32mins (yup that’s right RUN), followed by completing the 5km walk with my team & Fur babies to raise funds to fight MS!
If you would like to join the FORK MS team then follow the link below & I would love to see you on the day.
The link to join the team is: https://www.mswalk.org.au/fundraisers/ForkMS
If you would like to get behind me and support me in my fundraising goals, I will be doing many different activities over the next two months to raise funds for this beautiful foundation (both in person and online) or, if you would like to donate directly to my MS Walk Run + Roll donation page the link is: https://www.mswalk.org.au/fundraisers/sarahgoodman/vic
For those of you who don’t know I was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS August 2020 & have been on a bit of a roller coaster coming to terms with the diagnosis.
While most of the time I have a positive outlook - because let’s face it- I can not change this, & my physical symptoms have improved (mostly) the disease is here to stay & there many that need this support now. I am someone who has a big voice and I feel now is my time to put it to great use.
Multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition and the average age of diagnosis is 30 (6weeks after my 30th for me). It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely.
Because of your generous support, the funds that are raised will allow people living with multiple sclerosis to access vital MS Support Services, such as MS Peer Support, or the MS Employment Support program keeping those living with multiple sclerosis in the workforce.
Thank you again for your support.
