Support my challenge to leave MS behind!

This May, I will be participating in the May 50k Challenge to raise money for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis. MS is a disease in which the immune system attacks the myelin sheath that covers nerve fibers in the body. The results of this vary patient to patient, but they can be incredibly damaging and life-changing. Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world, with an estimated 1 in every 385 Canadians living with the disease.

As we live through this pandemic, it is important to remember that the fear we all feel may be multiplied exponentially for those that have pre-existing health conditions, such as MS. The social distance walks and grocery store trips that I appreciate as part of my daily routine are often impossible for people who are more at-risk. Right now, MS has no cure. But COVID-19 has brought to the forefront how crucial medical research is, and how, with funds and attention, it can move rapidly. Ultimately, labs save lives.

With this in mind (and lots of free time), in May 2020 I will double the May 50k challenge to run 100km. My goal is to raise $500 ($5 per km), all of which will go towards MS research. If you are able, you can donate to my page here -- even $1 would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you so much for your support!
