We are hiking the 1,200 kilometre Heysen Trail in 55 days, beginning 15th August 2017.
Our purpose behind the hike is to raise awareness and support for MS and Beyond Blue. MS in particular is an extremely personal cause to us as my brother was diagnosed with MS in 2013. Not only do I want to support him, but also the many others diagnosed with MS. The disease affects the central nervous system where symptoms include loss of balance, impaired vision and hearing, fatigue, muscle weakness and, in some, paralysis.
Although everyone is affected differently, everyday living skills become increasingly difficult for those battling with MS.
I'm inspired by the work of MS Society of SA & NT and wanted to support them by raising money. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about MS Society of SA & NT, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
