I am Conquering Cradle Mountain to Beat 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.

I have second stage progressive MS. I’m lucky enough to have found this out whilst there is still time (and awesome medication) to slow it down and hopefully stop it. Some people find out before drugs are needed, and others when the drugs don’t work. The medication I’m on involves monthly infusions to control my overly capable and reckless immunity. This is the second of many medications I have had to take.

Despite the good the medication does, it’s a challenging experience that has made the little things that most of us (including me prior) take for granted, a little harder.

To keep my spirits intact and my body in line. I'll be tackling Cradle Mountain in Tasmania for 5 days at the end of February 2022. I’m asking for you to support me by donating anything small or large.
Feel free to register and join!


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 through the Tasmania Wilderness World Heritage Area and traversing sections of the Overland Trail 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.
