Dear Friends and Family,
Year after year I participate in MuckFest because it offers me a way to give back. Together, we are making an impact by raising money for MS research. There are so many people like myself, who benefit from the medical breakthroughs the MS Society makes every day. I truly believe that I am still walking, working, and playing because of the money raised through fundraising events such as MuckFest. I am deeply grateful for your participation, encouragement, and support, and feel incredibly blessed for my friends and family who surround me. Thank you for helping me fight this fight.
Most days I live my life, giving no attention to the fact I have MS. MuckFest has always been an emotional day for me because the reality of living with MS hits close to home. On this day, I am forced to face the truth. However, accepting the impact MS will have on my future is so much easier knowing my friends and family are there to support and embrace me. You are my Warriors in this fight, and together we will accomplish greatness.
On Saturday I will be overwhelmed with appreciativeness, so I am thanking you all now for everything you have done. I won’t be able to thank you all personally for everything you have done. Although a simple ‘thank you’ seems so insignificant for how I deeply feel, please know the gratitude I hold in my heart for each one of you. See you Saturday.
