It’s hard to believe that it’s been (almost exactly) a year since I was privileged to partner with many friends to help raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and my Run On Challenge in April 2021 on the York County Heritage Rail Trail in Pennsylvania and the North Central Rail Trail in Maryland.
With a whole lot of help, we were able to raise $6,427.76 to help the NMSS continue their research and work for those battling MS. As someone who is a direct recipient of what they do, thank you SO much.
And here’s something really cool… another year has bought another opportunity to help people with Multiple Sclerosis. I found out this month that I’ve been invited to be a part of the MS Society UK London Marathon team on Sunday, October 2, 2022. Along with thousands of others, we’ll be running 26.2 miles through the streets of London, and, leading up to the race, raising funds to help my brothers and sisters in the UK who like me are dealing with MS.
With groceries and gas and a bunch of other stuff, I know it’s a crazy time for budgets, but would you be willing and able, at any amount, to help me as I raise funds for the MS Society UK? I’d be deeply grateful for any consideration and help.
My personal website has more info about my journey and the work of the MS Society UK, plus there are easy links to use:
I don’t know what his name was. But what he said came at the perfect time. Three miles from the Finish Line in Miami, three weeks ago. His simple sentence: “You’ve got this.” Even though I felt like the dirt on the bottom of my shoe at that point, he said he believed I could do it. So I did. Thank you, kind Stranger-Man.
It was the only day I brought two paper bags to school. One full. For lunch. A PB&J sandwich (grape jelly – is there anything else?) and Doritos (Nacho cheese. Cool Ranch hadn’t been invented.) And one empty. For the back of my chair. With my name on it. A piece of tape holding it.
