Walking 20k for the MS Society

Hi MSers, I hope you're doing well and, for those in the UK, are managing to soak up some of the Vitamin D-drenched sun rays that have decided to emerge (or, if heat isn't your thing, I hope you're staying shady and cool). For those who haven't seen any of my few posts yet: hello! I'm Farah, a writer and sometimes teacher living in London. I'm recently diagnosed (April ’21) with RRMS, and will be starting treatment on Ocrevus in the coming weeks. I feel so happy to have found the incredible support network that is Shift, where I can feel seen, heard and encouraged by people’s experiences and kindness. On 19th September, I’ll be walking 20k through London with friends, in order to raise money for the MS Society's potentially life-changing research into new treatments. I know how lucky I am to be able to take on that physical challenge. I am overwhelmed to have already surpassed two goals since setting up the fundraiser on Monday (£500, then £1000), and so really want to keep the fundraising ball rolling! On my fundraising page, you can read more about me and my diagnosis story. Any donations small or big are so welcomed, as well as word-spreading to any of your nearest and dearest who are keen to contribute to this groundbreaking research! I know none of us want to feel constantly worried about our MS getting worse.

That’s so great @Farah94!! It’s great to feel the support all around you. Love the walks. https://secure.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR/Walk/ORCWalkEvents?pg=entry&fr_id=31716
