Huzzah! The 2017 MS Walk was completed by a wild, crazy and also beautiful group of friends, family and significant others on May 7, 2017!
If you aren't aware, I do donate $1 from every sale to my fundraising efforts for this event and combine it with our Team Scramble Legs to raise and awesome total of $5,480.00 to help the MS Society of Canada continue their fantastic and groundbreaking research into new therapies and continued support of people with MS, like me and my cousin (below) who co-captain our team!
They also hold a host of other programs for support of caregivers, like my dear hubby, and for things like assistive technologies, like programs to help my broken eyes read the computer so I can type this blog post! They also helped me get a scooter, to assist with walking in hot weather, but really, I like to use it to beat all my "normal" teammates to the finish line ;P
Photo above is with my Hubby, my lifelong teammate, and loyal supporter of crazy ideas!
Without the support of folks like you and others who donated to my fundraising efforts, I would have been much more afraid of what the future holds for someone with this chronic and debilitating illness when I was first diagnosed in 2011.
While I still don't know how MS will rear its ugly head next, I do know where to turn when I need support, advice, assistance or just someone to listen, as the MS Society has been there for me when I've needed them.
Thanks to all who helped make this event a success and to all who continue to support my little handmade business! Geek on!
