Next September, I'll be participating in Ultra-Trail Harricana, a trail running event in Charlevoix forests associated with the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
As many of you know, this cause is particularly important to me, as MS directly affects my family. Lucie, my mother, woke up one day with half of her body paralyzed. After few weeks, the diagnosis was made: she had Multiple Sclerosis. When she found out her life would never be the same, she was 36.
Running the UTHC and mobilizing people around me to raise funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is the way I found to show my support to her, and to feel that somewhow, we are contributing together to research efforts and to provide services to people living with MS.
I'm counting on you, and every single donation counts. Please make your donation right away by clicking DONATE NOW on this page - you'll see, you will feel sooo good :)
Enormous thanks in advance for your kind gesture!
Can you imagine....
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It's estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
...a future without MS
I've registered for this event because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. With your help, together we can make a difference.
