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?

As most of you will know, my mum was diagnosed with MS a few years ago. Ever since then myself and Drew have taken part in various fundraisers including the MS walkathon and the MS Sydney to The Gong ride.

Some of you however may not know that earlier this year in February I was also diagnosed with MS.

Needless to say my world was turned upside down with a myriad of tests and scans and now injections that I give myself every second day to try and slow the progress of the disease. Add to that the struggles we are all facing from COVID-19 and isolation and it’s been a rough year to say the least.

I’ve decided that my options are to dwell on my situation with sadness (which some days I do, don’t worry) OR get out there and live life to the fullest!!

I’ll be riding (virtually) from Canberra to Wollongong throughout the month of October (also the month I turn 30 - terrifying) and would love Your help to reach my fundraising goal to provide much needed funding for this incurable disease that we still know so little about.

Any donation large or small is greatly appreciated.

Thank you again for your support!
