Memorial Walk for Dad
Moving toward a cure
Having multiple sclerosis means that you may suddenly have blurry vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. Or that you may not always be able to walk around the house, let alone for miles on end. The symptoms of MS are different, and devastating, for everyone - the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day.
Why I Walk So Far
I've registered for the Wisconsin Challenge Walk MS because I want to do something for the people who have been diagnosed - and because I want to do everything to prevent more people from learning what it means to live with this disease. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability.
This year we have decided to take this 3 Day journey through Door County in Memory of Dad, Dave Nondorf. With his recent passing as wanted to do something different; something big. Dad LOVED being outside and seeing the trees, wildlife, and life. He loved the visits up to Door County, so the Challenge walk with be a wonderful tribute to him. The 3 Day "Challenge" will be nothing compared to what the last 20+ years have been for Dad, but it's a start of our lasting memorial to his life.
Why You Should Sponsor Me
This event is a challenge - and an opportunity - for everyone involved, participants and donors alike. With commitment to this cause, we can all be part of a historic undertaking. The funds raised from the Challenge Walk MS will not only support research for a cure, but also provide programs which address the needs of hundreds of thousands of people living with MS right now. Because we choose to walk for those who sometimes can't. Because we choose to donate to the Challenge Walk MS, we are getting ever closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."
