Your support, my friends, is requested.

Each year the National MS Society holds their annual Walk MS event in Knoxville to support awareness, research and fundraising for those with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In 1996, my Junior year in high school, my mother was diagnosed with this horrible illness. In honor/support of her, and all others with MS, I will be participating again this year to support this wonderful cause.

Yesterday, I talked about signing up for my first 5k. Although this is a walk event, there are runners. And although this will be an untimed course, this will be my first running event. I'm going to go for it, thanks to all the encouragement I got from you all yesterday.  It would not only mean so much on a personal level to actually complete a 5k, but my mom would be so honored; she's so proud of my progress.

As a participant, I am asking for your support in my fund raising efforts. It's faster and easier than ever to support this cause that's so important to me. Simply click the picture at the bottom to donate!

Please know any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of people with MS. I appreciate your support so very, very much and look forward to letting you know how I do.
