Walk MS: Seattle and 5K Run 2018

It seems hard to believe, but it was 10 years ago that I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. My life has changed immensely in 10 years.

10 years of MS means this is the 9th year of fundraising.  But this note is coming quite late, because I've been wrestling every week with whether I can make it back from London this year.

While I've been wrestling with the decision, I've been amazed to see multiple people start their fundraising efforts ahead of my ability to make a decision.  To continue to raise money and awareness for this disease.  You are my heroes.

I want to give a special call out to one hero.  Kyle Nixon, who walks for Team Blitz, and has an MRI scheduled the day before Walk MS this year.  He has lived with MS for 17 years, is struggling this year, and the money raised helps influence the medicine he is on or will be changing to.  The money raised helps impact his quality of life.  He walks again this year and I'm proud to know him.

 

For me, I've made the hard decision to miss the Walk this year.  Truthfully, with an 9 month old and a lot going on, it was simply too much to make the trip from London.  My passion remains and runs deep for not only the event, but the community you have helped grow around Multiple Sclerosis.

While I won't make it back this year, I am excited to move back to Seattle and continue raising awareness.  Next year, for the 10th year of fundraising, I will be planning a big celebration along with the walk to celebrate everything we have accomplished together.

Thank you for your endless support on this journey.  I am always humbled by the incredible support.
