MS Awareness Week is coming up, and this morning Leigh and the kids and I signed up to participate in the MS Walk and Fun Run fundraiser in Sydney on 1 June (I think it goes without saying we picked the walk, right? “Fun run” has always sounded like an oxymoron to me.)
We paid an entry fee but we’re hoping to raise a bit of money through sponsorship, too.
We only registered this morning so I haven’t done anything exciting to our entry page yet (and probably won’t actually do much to it at all) but if you want to see it, it’s at http://sydney.mswalk.org.au/?KLHH
Some MS facts
18,000 Australians have MS
Three times as many women as men have MS
The average age of diagnosis is 30 (Leigh was diagnosed at 33)
Five Australians are diagnosed every working day
If you’re a family member or friend we know IRL, stay tuned. We’ll be hitting you up for sponsorship some time soon!
