Charity Walk – 150km for MS Fundraiser
Kate has been walking with a team of family, colleagues and friends to raise money for MS research as part of The May 50k virtual charity run. Funds raised will be used for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis. Did you know that MS is commonly diagnosed in 20-40 year olds?
50km seemed like too easy a goal so the team decided to up the challenge to running or walking 150km each during the month of May.
Kate ended up walking 76 km in the first week alone! And despite already smashing the 150km target, we would love to give these wonderful women some motivation to keep the kilometres rolling as the month draws to a close, so please follow this link to donate and help leave MS in the past!

A disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves.
In MS, resulting nerve damage disrupts communication between the brain and the body.
Multiple sclerosis causes many different symptoms, including vision loss, pain, fatigue and impaired coordination. The symptoms, severity and duration can vary from person to person. Some people may be symptom free for most of their lives, while others can have severe, chronic symptoms that never go away.
Physiotherapy and medication that suppress the immune system can help with symptoms, and slow disease progression.
