I'm supporting Kiss Goodbye to MS

One marathon, once a month until I raise onemillion dollars!

It’s super easy to sit in your lounge telling yourself you’re going to raise a million US dollars for charity – yeah, no problem! Boy have I had a big old boot up the backside! Raising money for charity is massive!

Since January, I have to be honest and say that I’ve not really raised too much. I thought that running an ultra marathon (250km across the desert) would have encouraged people to give more generously. But it’s tough. People just don’t have money to give right now – I understand that completely. But I’m not giving up, and I hope you’re not giving up on me either.

Even if this challenge takes me 10 years – I will just have to keep on running. I myself cannot afford to keep trekking to different countries and indeed continents to run a unique marathon every month, so my plan is to run a marathon each month wherever I am.

One marathon, once a month until I raise one million dollars!

Ultimately, I’d like to Forest Gump it and just keep running until I don’t want to anymore…a pipe dream perhaps – but one day…

Two of my close friends are dealing with MS. They are young, beautiful, inspiring women who mean the world to me. Like every other person suffering from this disease, they shouldn’t be. Martina and Morgan, two very different women, connected by Multiple Sclerosis.
I met Martina when I was at sixth form college. She had been living in England for only a few years, her parents returned to the UK from South Africa. Martina and I have been friends for more than 20 years, it’s possible she has had the disease for the majority of this time, only recently has she been diagnosed. Her wise ways and inspirational comments have stuck with me since the early days “Sam, you cannot be truly happy with anyone until you are happy with yourself,” words I have always tried to live by.

Morgan and I met when I was living in Canada. During the year that I spent living in Toronto and St Catharines in 2004-2005, Morgan was my ‘go-to’ girl. Full of life and love, she took me under her wing and made sure that there was never a dull moment. She also introduced me to some of the most amazing people that I am still friends with today. Morgan has also recently been diagnosed with MS after battling thyroid cancer a few years before.

But, I can only do this with your help—Every donation, every dollar, and every penny will make a difference, and together we can Kiss Goodbye to MS, once and for all.

Thank you to my Supporters
