These people all have something in common.  They all have Multiple Sclerosis.  You can check out a very comprehensive list HERE.

This week is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week.  I am fully aware of MS on a daily basis.  Between the meds, the shots, the aches and pains and fears, I KNOW all I care to about it.

Here’s your chance to ask a question.  Is there something you’re curious about concerning MS?  Ask away!

This is also the kick off of my fund-raising & team recruiting efforts.  I’m doing two walks this year.  May 1 will be a 3.1 mile walk in Richmond, VA.  That’s my warm up.  It will jump-start my official “training” for the 3-day 50-mile Challenge Walk in Door County, WI in September.  You can make a difference.

You can donate to the Richmond Walk. (I’d like to get $125 for a T-shirt, but no minimum amount is required.)

You can join me for the Richmond Walk.

You can donate to the Door County Walk ($1500 minimum required).

You can join me for the Door County Walk.

I’d love your support.
