I'm taking the Challenge to fight MS!
I am taking part in the MS Gong Ride Virtual, the Ride to Fight MS.
I start my challenge on 1 October. You will be able to see my progress here on my page and support me along the way!
Why am I fundraising?
It’s quite staggering to think that multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition. It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely.
For instance, can you imagine waking up one day unable to do the everyday things you would usually take for granted? Like not being able to see properly (or at all), you physically can’t get out of bed, can’t walk to the phone to call someone – anyone – or live a life without pain?
All of a sudden, your world has changed.
Thanks to your generous support, the funds we raise will allow people living with multiple sclerosis to access vital MS support services. Support to keep Aussies living with multiple sclerosis connected to others and connected to the information and services they need to live their best life.
Thank you again for your support!

Thank you very much for your support of the MS 2020 Gong RideSunday 15th Nov
Thank you again for your very kind donation to support people living with multiple sclerosis in the 2020 MS Gong Ride Virtual this October!
We have raised $1,563 and ridden 239km against the target of riding 234km on my Dad’s stationary bike. We had a little fun on the ‘last ride’ picturing oneself on the last day of the ‘tour’ (de France) and on the ‘podium’ celebrating ….. the pictures attached show some of the fun involved. Thank you very much to my support ‘crew’, videographer, photographer, and supporter! - Rachel!
Overall, everyone has contributed some much needed funds to support MS.
This is the first time the MS Gong Ride has gone virtual..
And we have contributed to the overall great news….
Thanks to you and our awesome community of riders, we’ve currently raised $742,735 (and maybe more now) in the ride to Fight MS!
