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!

As if I needed to do another ride...Sunday 1st Nov
Done and dusted!!Saturday 31st Oct
So so tired.....Wednesday 28th Oct Tried to clock up a long ride after work today with Bruce and I was so fatigued and tired, that at the 50km mark I started whimpering on the bike and stopped pedalling...got off....and quietly cried...didn’t think I could continue any further. A little pep talk from Bruce, a quick rest and we were off again.
Birthday weekend rideMonday 26th Oct
Day 18 and officially half way!Sunday 18th Oct Knocked off 641kms with over 6000m of climbing. Most of the rides have been completed indoors, but managed two rides on the Tandem over the weekend.
Day 14Wednesday 14th Oct Well this has been a whirlwind... I’m at the 449km mark between Manangatan in Victoria and Tooleybuc in NSW. Father in hospital for the last 10 days, sister in Intensive Care Interstate and me with hip bursitis keeping me off the bike for a few days.
OMG!!Friday 25th Sep We're experiencing a prolonged wet winter and with no holiday in site to prep for or regain some fitness, I was left wondering what I could do to stay motivated? I discovered my employer Novartis has a team participating in the virtual MSGong Ride - usually run each year from Sydney to Wollongong, the ride aims to raise awareness and much needed funds for Multiple Sclerosis. Due to COVID, 2020 will be run virtually from anywhere in Australia to Wollongong! BINGO!! So can I make the distance from Adelaide to Wollongong AND work full time??? 1286kms between Oct 1- Nov 1? One can only try!!
