I'm taking the Challenge to fight MS!
This May I will be taking part in the annual MS Gong ride; this year marks the 40th year which is going to be a big one!
Although I don’t have any family or friends who have been directly impacted by this debilitating disease, I am passionate about raising funds as I believe that together we can make a difference, and really create awareness in the hope for a much-needed cure.
During my time in Customer care and through visiting various Huddles I have been moved to hear from our bankers on how MS has affected them & their loved one’s lives.
Any donation will mean a great deal to me, and the great news is that as a WESTPAC employee every dollar I raise Westpac will match, please help me support this great cause.
What is MS:
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. It interferes with nerve impulses within the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves.
Multiple sclerosis is one of the most common diseases of the central nervous system with over 25,000 people living with the disease in Australia and more than two million diagnosed worldwide. There is currently no known cure for the disease, however there are several treatment options available to help manage symptoms.
Thank you for your support.
