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!

Prospect Reservoir with the wallabies!

Saturday 31st Oct
Valiant effort in the rain at Prospect Reservoir. Mixing with the wallabies but then retreated a bit soggy from the rain. Time for brunch!

Slight mishap but persevering!

Saturday 24th Oct
Captains log: star date 02023: as the team pushes on to new horizons we had a slight mishap with our engineer pretending to be a speed bump. 😱
But we will prevail! All the best John and you can have a rest as you've done 300kms!!
Thank you to our great paramedics!

Ride variety!
