MS Walk

I haven't posted since November? Really?!  Well, last year was not exactly the best year in my life, but so far, 2011 is shaping up to be pretty good! It is early on, but....

I am very excited about the MS Walk this year because I am participating in it! Yes, not only did I sign up, but I am the team captain of Team Olympic View!! The walk is Saturday, April 2 at 9:30 a.m.  I have reached my own personal fundraising goal as well as the team goal. It is such a worthy cause and one I am all too familiar with.

I am compelled to walk this year because on April 1 of last year, I couldn't walk without assistance, being in the throes of a very serious MS exacerbation - the first in almost 30 years. Thank God I am back to being "me" and having now experienced first hand the terrible consequences of the disease, I really NEED to walk this year!

Here is a link that will take you to the MS Walk site. Check it out!http://www.nationalmssociety.org/goto/TeamOlympicView
