I AM TREKKING THE SOUTHERN ALPS TO FIGHT MS!
Multiple sclerosis is the most common disease of the central nervous system and it strikes young people in the prime of their lives.
There is currently no known cure.
It's quite staggering that multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other neurological condition, with the average age of diagnosis just 30 years old. Every case of multiple sclerosis is unique – the symptoms, severity and progress of the disease are different for everyone.
So I’m trekking the awe-inspiring landscapes, native bushland and expansive plains, canyons, countryside and coast of Aotearoa, New Zealand’s scenic South Island, to raise funds to deliver essential MS support services and ensure no one faces MS alone.
Please DONATE now to support my trek and give hope to thousands of Australians living with multiple sclerosis.
Thank you for your support.
Getting my butt into... gearTuesday 30th Jan Got the nudge today from the tour lead to have my gear sorted out. I of course am having a serious case of imposter syndrome so have been reluctant to tick things off my list but I'm going to have to bite that bullet today! Share
Overwhelmed...Saturday 27th Jan
90 days and counting down...Saturday 20th Jan The checklists are being made, and items are being ticked off! I now have a medical clearance, hiking boots, and a lot of maps to review. I'm feeling equal parts overwhelmed with the task I've challenged myself for in 2024, and very excited to be showing MS who is in charge here.
175 days to goSunday 29th Oct It's starting to feel a lot more real now. Summer has arrived and by the time it turns cold again, I'll be on my way to Christchurch. Share
