I'm supporting Kiss Goodbye to MS
I am WALKING A WORLD OF FRIENDSHIPS FOR MS to help Kiss Goodbye to MS as I want to do something to make a difference!
I started back in 2015, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and acknowledge 20 years of living with MS, by travelling around the world, trying to raise funds for research in the countries I visited while also raising awareness for MS.
We haven't kissed MS goodbye in the interim, so, in 2020 I am celebrating my 75th Birthday with my first cruise! I will be visiting many countries in northern Europe where MS is prevalent so I am doing a 5 Km WALK wherever I can, with a stop en route home in Iceland for yet another WALK, the farthest I will ever be from the equator (which seems to be the dividing line for pwMS - the father from it you live, the more chance of being diagnosed with MS, go figure!)
Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I have had to cancel my travel plans for this year - of WALKing in Denmark(1), Germany(2), Estonia(1), Rusia(2), Finland(1), Sweden(1), Iceland(2) and the United States - perhaps next year? Instead, I will be WALKing ten (10) routes in Ontario Canada, re-exploring an amazing and subtly beautiful province in this humungous country. And if the border between Canada and the United States closes, there will be another two WALKs to add to the mix!
I hope you will support my journey by donating to this, the next (and now modified!) stage of my personal odyssey to help find a cure for MS, knowing that, along with the thousands of women, men and children world-wide living with this rotten disease, I will never give in, never give up and will always keep S'myelin!
