My Achievements

I'm 100km this month to leave MS behind

Afgelegd

260.64km

My target

100km

Support for MS Research and treatments for everyone!

English:

I am in the MAY 50K of this year.

In May I will run 100KM to challenge myself and to collect money for research to MS.

In NL there are 25.000 people with MS and I am one of them. Worldwide there are about 2,8 million MS patients.

In 2018 I was diagnosed with MS. It was quite a shock, but lucky I have the mild variant so far and my MS is in remission.

Therefore I want, because I still can, raise money for research and I will run 100K in May.

Alone I can do so little, but together we can do so much!

Because of the cooperation of the International MS Federation and the MS Research Foundation an MS-free world is getting closer! Together we can change lives!

This fund raise will also make treatment accessible for all patients!

I hope you want to support me to get to an MS free world and donate my kilometers? Every amount will help!

In advance I thank you so much!

Dutch:

Ik doe mee met The MAY 50K. In mei ga ik in totaal 100 kilometer afleggen om mijn grenzen te verleggen en om geld op te halen voor baanbrekend MS-onderzoek en gelijke toegang tot behandeling van MS.

Er leven 25.000 mensen in Nederland met MS , waarvan ik er een ben en ik heb jouw hulp nodig voor een MS-vrije wereld.

In 2018 heb ik de diagnose MS gekregen en nu wil ik, omdat ik het nog kan, helpen geld in te zamelen voor onderzoek.

Alone I can do so little, but together we can do so much!

Als we het samen doen kunnen we veel bereiken! Dankzij de samenwerking van de Internationale MS Federatie en Stichting MS Research komt een MS-vrije wereld dichterbij. Samen kunnen we levens veranderen.

Zou je mij willen sponsoren? Elke bijdrage helpt!

Ontzettend bedankt!


My Updates

World MS Day

Today I ran my last run for this challenge and I hope I will get some more donations on this special day., World MS Day. As expected I had quite a heavy reaction on my vaccination, but on this special day I wanted to run. Not my best run but still 8k added to my goal. We hope we can leave MS behind us and that is why I participated in this challenge. MS is a nasty disease with many faces. As MS patient I know how important research is. But also that treatment is available for everyone. 67% of this fundraising will go to patients and 33% is for research. Please, support me in this and donate on this special day THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

20K to go

Last Saturday I got my invitation for the Covid-19 vaccination. Due to this I thought: I better try to run as much as possible before I get my first shot. This because I don't know if I will have side effects of the vaccination (I have never been vaccinated before) and I want to finish this challenge no matter what. So, I felt a bit like Forrest Gump this week...run Jeanette, run 🏃‍♀️🙂) Now I am at 80k and hope to run 12k this weekend. Then I will have a week left for the last 8k. I get my first shot coming Tuesday so I think I will reach the 100k Thursday if all goes as planned 🙂. Keeping my fingers crossed that I will not have any side effects Tuesday.

Half way

Another week done and I can say I ran more than initially thought. I wanted to run at least 25k per week, but now I'm already at 66k. It's really going well🙏🍀. After today's run a well deserved protein pancake😋 Yesterday I got my invitation for the Covid-19 vaccination and I hope I won't get any side effects. I have never been vaccinated as a child so I have no idea how my body will react to it. But I am happy we get it, because I have seen with my father what this virus can do. His body couldn't beat it and he didn't survive. So fingers crossed I won't get sick and can keep on running🤞🏃‍♀️

on a mission

Rain or shine, it doesn't matter when it's running time. Especially when you are on a mission like I am now. I want to raise as much money as possible for this foundation. And this first week I got all kind of weather. Hard wind, rain, sun.... I sometimes get the question why I do this while having MS myself. But for me that is the beauty of this challenge also. I am lucky that I can still do this, but I also realise that this can change suddenly. If I can contribute by making this effort to raise money, I gladly do, because it is needed! I also do this because I think it's really not ok that some people can't get treatment, when available, because they can't afford it. To me, that's really so unbelievable and unfair. I think treatment, when available, should be accessible for anyone. And with this challenge I know 67% will go to patients. And that is GREAT!

Personal best 🏃‍♀️

Today I felt like flying🙂. I ran my personal best in distance... 13k in a row. Amazing what you can do when you have another reason than your own health to workout. I feel happy and grateful when I see all the positive messages and donations I am getting, when I was actually scared to share my story at first. I run to help other MS patients and for research. We hope they will find a cure so we can leave MS behind us.

Workout schedule

Besides the running I also do strength training. This is also important for MS patients.  We need to try to stay in the best shape possible. So on the days I don't run I do fitness. Completely different but I love it. Even when I don't really feel like it I just give myself a kick in the but and do it. It's been a way of life since long, but after the diagnosis it became even more important for me. Tomorrow It's another run and today was a full body workout 🏋‍♀️💪

Besides the running strength training


First 10K are in

This weekend was the official start of the challenge.
Yesterday I ran my first 10.75km. Only 90K more to go:-).

In a Facebook group with other participants we can share our progress. And it is so amazing to see how many MS patients and family/ friends of MS patients are contributing to this fund-raise.

So many stories.....and it shows again how many faces MS has. From patients diagnosed at a very young age to elderly ones.
The disease makes no difference in age, gender, nationality or whatever. Anyone can get this diagnose.
But it also is uniting us in this challenge. We all want the same: a world free of MS!
Worldwide there are 2,8Mio diagnosed with MS.
Research has resulted in much better medicine and treatment already, but we hope they will find a cure for this unpredictable disease.
33% of the donations will go to research and 67% is for access for treatment for MS patients.
I am grateful to be able to be part of this and contribute by running 100K.

We kiss MS goodbye!

Almost time to run

It is almost May, time for the challenge. What is so amazing for me is that a lot of people who are participating in this challenge, are MS patients. It is great to see all those patients willing to raise money for research and treatments for their own disease. Some are not able to walk anymore, but they will use there wheelchair, hand bike or find another way to make it to their goal.
I am lucky, I am still able to do everything, that is why I challenged myself to run. This, because I know I have to cherish this luck, because MS is so unpredictable, it can change any minute.
I am preparing myself to this challenge, by running 3 times a week now.
Thank you all so much for your support! This means a lot to me, and to all other MS patients! Thumb up for you sponsors!

You‘re outstanding! I was somehow shocked to read this - but after a few moments, I thought- „Damn - it’s Jeanette & she is a tough cookie!“ Let me know, when your journey takes you nearer to the Roermond area - me and some of my pals will join you either by feet or bicycle.
