I Can Make a Difference
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. I have been blessed with the fact that my own symptoms are not debilitating and can be managed on a day-to-day basis.
Why I Walk So Far
Because I still can! One of the first challenges that people with MS face, is trouble walking. 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.
Why You Should Sponsor Me
This event, Sept. 20-22, 2013, was another 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. I am grateful that I can still walk without problems. I hope to continue walking for a long time! Team "No Swet!" had a great time at the walk. Thanks for your support. If you would still like to donate, it is never too late!
"Join the Movement" is the slogan the MS Society often uses--we are trying to assure that people with MS CAN keep moving!
