Run for Fun?
Why that team name? It's what Kathy and I say each time we prepare for a run based on the movie quote from the old cowboy in Back to the Future III - one of our all-time favorite movies!
Since we don't bike, we're modifying the Team MSAA Anniversary Challenge to add all elements of 6.+ 8 + 19.70 x 2 (for our team) to run a combined total of 67 miles, which also happens to equal my birth year.
Our goal with this run challenge is to raise $100 for the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America.
Every day, people with MS live with the unpredictability of this disease. They may face unbearable fatigue, balance and mobility issues, numbness, difficulty walking, heat sensitivity, blurry vision, or any others in a long list of symptoms. No one knows what causes MS and there is no cure. But with your support, there is help – and hope – for anyone affected by MS.
MSAA improves the lives of tens of thousands of individuals with MS, their families and their care partners each year by providing free, vital programs and services such as: a toll-free Helpline; award-winning publications including a magazine, The Motivator; dynamic website featuring educational videos and research updates; S.E.A.R.C.H.™ program to assist the MS community with learning about different treatment choices; a mobile phone app, My MS Manager™; a resource database, My MS Resource Locator®; equipment distribution; educational programs and activities; MRI funding; and more.
Your support helps make the free programs and services MSAA offers possible. Please consider contributing to my fundraising goal and help improve lives today!
