Why walk 22 Miles for MS?
MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease. Our team is uniting to end MS forever, and we invite you to donate or join our team.
We've formed a team for Finish MS to bring together a community of passionate people to connect and raise funds to change the world for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis. Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $222 as there is no fee to be part of this walk. Full disclosure: these walks have led to building lifelong friendships, hilarious memories & a great sense of pride for one’s accomplishments.
Last year we raised over $20,000 on my birthday to fight MS! We began walking at 7am from Lake Pine in Apex and made it to Holly Springs by 5pm...stopping every 4 miles at sponsored rest stops along the way. After lunch we had the honor of accepting the Proclamation from Mayor Lance Olive acknowledging 2/22 as MS Awareness Day right here in Apex NC!! And since 2/22 is also National Margarita Day, we got to enjoy Orange Crush Margaritas at the Mason Jar Tavern before enjoying the final celebration and Silent Auction at Carolina Brewing Company!!
This year marks our 5th 22 Miler!! It will be quite different for many of us, after enduring the loss of one of our own.....the beautiful, brave & spirited Tess Teasley. There is no doubt in my mind that she would want us to CARRY ON in her honor. Honestly, it's the least we can for all she did for us!!
So please JOIN US however you can: registering to walk, sharing your fundraising link with loved ones, making a tax-deductible donation or offering items for our Silent Auction. Every little bit make a huge difference and adds to our MOMENTUM!!
