Camino 2019

One Goal - a world free of MS
Starting May 4th, 2019, Nichole Taylor will walk 500-miles along the Camino de Santiago from St. Jean Pied De Port, France, to Santiago, Spain. This journey of 1 million steps over 38 days will raise money to help change the lives of people affected by MS and fuel progress towards a world free of MS. You can help today by donating to our fundraising activity. 

 

Nichole, MS Warrior since 2010
Early in 2010, I began experiencing blurred vision, dizziness, and numbness in my left hand and left leg. These symptoms aggressively worsened, and that Summer I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. I was 36 years old and a mother of two small children. MS rapidly impacted my ability to function, my independence, and the normalcy of our lives. By that Christmas, I was unable to walk without the use of a cane or a walker.  In October of 2012, after two years of strenuous rehabilitation and aided by newly available MS medications, I could once again walk unassisted. I have been training for the Camino for 6 years and have decided now is the time. 

 

Finish MS Awareness Rocks

Each donor to the campaign will receive a box of Finish MS Awareness rocks to spread in their community or in their travels.  Over a dozen rock painting women and men create the Finish MS rocks.  Each rock is tagged with the Facebook page - FinishMS and a simple message FIND-POST-HIDE AGAIN.  We track the location of the Awareness rocks as they travel using large maps and an excel spread sheet.  For more information check out our Facebook page - FinishMS.  Take a moment and read the bios of our team mates, as well!  Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by MS.  Please donate today!

About MS

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.
