One walk down, one to go

April 5, 2015

challenge walk logoIf you follow my blog regularly, you may already know that I volunteered to work during the three-day 50-mile MS Challenge Walk from Savannah to Tybee Island, Georgia, on March 6-8. I had a lot of fun volunteering during the walk, and I met a lot of people from all over the southeast U.S.  — people who have been diagnosed with MS,  their family members and friends. (See my March 9 post.)

As a part of a team that represented the National MS Society’s Alabama-Mississippi chapter, I was able to raise more than $1,600 for this regional event. I want to thank each of  you who made a contribution! This year’s Savannah challenge walk raised a total of more than $600,000.

But that’s not all, folks. On April 11, I will participate in the Birmingham MS Walk to help the Alabama chapter raise money for cutting-edge research and life-changing local programs for people diagnosed with MS and their families. I have participated in this local event for close to 20 years. In the past, I have served as team captain of the Alabama Power team, and, this year, I am serving as team captain of the Splashers.

The Splashers team is made up primarily of members of the Lakeshore Foundation’s MS Aquatics Class. We are a support group and exercise class all rolled into one.  Many of us have been diagnosed with MS, but our family members and friends also walk. I had attended the class for 10 years, and our team has participated in this local walk event for more than 5 years.

If you haven’t made a donation to the Birmingham MS Walk, and if you would like to support my efforts and the efforts of the SMS walk logoplashers team, please go to http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Donate, click on “support an event participant,” and make a donation. Thanks for your help in finding a cure for MS.
