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.

Kayla and Sharyn's Southern Alps Adventure

Monday 18th Sep
Hi friends and family. Kayla and I are off to trek the Alps of NewZealand in April 2024. We are raising money for MS, to help deliver essential support services to MS sufferers. We are reminded of MS daily with Kayla having to find a balance between her incredibly positive life, including work, exercise, travel and loving life, to also sorting ongoing specialist appointments, MRI's and infusions. We will have lots of fundraising activities along the way so look forward to any support you can offer. Thanks

Freddo Frog Fundraiser

Monday 18th Sep
Just catching you all up on the Freddo situation. Whilst Kayla is working hard and meeting physical exercise challenges, I am busy selling confectionary, along with an army of friends and family helping out. Cooktown Car Hire has donated the money to purchase the first lot of chocolates so there is 100% profits heading straight back to MS fundraising. We will soon be banking $1260.00 from the sale of the first 'batch' of yummy confectionery. Thanks to everyone for selling, buying and supporting us :)
