Hi, my name is M.J.
On Sunday May 28th, I will be walking 10 kms to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. This is often called Canada's disease since it affects some many Canadians and we don't know why and there is no known cure. MS an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord) that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility.
The cause of MS is unknown and there is no known cure. You may be wondering why I am participating in this walk. One fact that I was not aware of is this - every day three Canadians are diagnosed with MS. On Friday April 7th, my 19 year old daughter was one of those three. Sitting in the doctor's office with my wife Caroline and being told your daughter has Multiple Sclerosis is like getting kicked in the stomach.
So this is my reason for walking this year. My goal - is to raise $5000
and I have 12 days to accomplish this. So whatever you can donate - will be greatly appreciated.
Go to my Facebook page at Facebook.com/5000orBust, follow my page and click on the "Learn More" button to donate directly online. You can use your credit card or through PayPal.
As an added bonus, if I reach my goal of $5000, I will shave my head, live on my FaceBook page. Heck I have not been bald since birth.
Any donation will be greatly appreciated by my daughter Kyra and our family.
