Fundraising Honor Roll

Why I Participate:

Multiple sclerosis affects millions of people, including our co-workers, friends, families and loved ones. That's why I registered for Challenge Walk MS. Challenge Walk MS is where we connect and each step we take brings us closer to a world free of MS.

About MS

I am asking you to support me in Challenge Walk MS because this cause is meaningful to me. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.

Please support me!

In January, I had to undergo foot surgery that led to a very long recovery. In May, I felt well enough to take on the MS 3 mile walk in Milwaukee. The flexibility and mobility in my foot continues to grow, so I figured the next logical step was to challenge myself to a 50-mile walk and raise money for MS research at the same time. 

My ability to perform simple tasks was greatly inhibited by my injured foot, and I can only imagine the kind of struggles an MS sufferer has on a daily basis. If me being very shortly inconvenienced and pained leads to groundbreaking research that can bring an end to MS, then I would do it again, several times over. 

Your gift helps support cutting-edge research and programs and services for everyone impacted by MS. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Every step matters. Every dollar counts. Every person makes a difference.
