To celebrate the end of my twenties I am going to do one of my favorite activities: a running challenge. From October 11, 2017 to October 11, 2018, I am going to run 30 races in honor of my 30th birthday. This means I will be running a race or two most weeks. My goal is to run mostly 5ks, but who knows what adventure will pop up. Along the way, I will also be raising money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, through their Finish MS campaign. This is a very important charity to me, and in an effort to continue reducing “stuff” rather than buy gifts for me this year, I’d prefer a donation to this page. Thank you in advance!
I’ve set an ambitious goal because I know that with support from people like you we can get there. The money raised will help fund amazing progress in MS research, as well as services that ensure people affected by MS can live their best lives. This cause is really important to me, so I hope you will help me end MS forever.
When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by MS. Symptoms of MS range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.
Want to join us?
We’d love to have you!
