I'M RIDING 2000KM THIS OCTOBER
TO FIGHT MS

I'm taking the Challenge to fight MS!

This November, I am taking part in the 40th MS Gong Ride!

Since 1981, this iconic ride has raised funds to help fight MS and I'm now part of this incredible legacy.

Why am I fundraising?

It’s quite staggering to think that multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition. The average age of diagnosis is 30 years, and there is no known cure.

Every person’s MS varies, but some of the symptoms are not being able to see properly (or at all), loss of balance, ability to walk, pins and needles, and chronic pain.

Your support will help people with multiple sclerosis receive the vital support, treatments, and services to help them live well at home, remain connected to work, and be part of the community.

Thank you again for your support!

My Updates

Coming back from Covid-19 to fight MS!

Friday 2nd Jul
In November, I will be riding the MS Gong Ride to raise funds to fight MS. It will be my first major ride since recovering from Covid-19 in December 2020 - so I am expecting a solid challenge!

Suffering Covid-19 resulted in a rough few weeks and an unpleasant few months (plus a big hit to my fitness), but the impact of that virus on me is paltry compared to the lifelong impact that MS has on those young people, who are just like me, who suffer that insidious disease.

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. The average age of diagnosis is between 20 and 40 years of age, although symptoms may begin much earlier.

Training back to full fitness to take on the Gong ride will be hard for me, but it is only a small challenge compared to that faced by MS-sufferers. I and my colleagues at Allens Linklaters are proud to join Team Westpac Group to face this challenge. We would be grateful for your support as we raise funds to give a fighting chance to MS sufferers.
