We are team MEEP – as that is the noise Beaker the cockatiel, our team mascot, makes. Stewart is going for 10 km, Leah is planning for 5 km … and Beaker will enjoy having two tired people to sit on afterwards. :)
We are taking part in the 2013 MS Walk and Fun Run in order to raise funds for people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is is the most common disease of the central nervous system and affects more than 23,000 Australians.
Did you know?
- The average age of diagnosis of MS is just 30 years
- MS affects three times as many women as men
MS Australia aims to minimize the impact of multiple sclerosis on all individuals affected by the disease, as well as their families, carers and the community, by offering a wide range of services, equipment and support. MS Australia’s goal is to assist everyone affected by MS to live life to their fullest potential and secure the care and support they need, until we ultimately find a cure.
