Accept the challenge with me!

MS touches more people in our communities than realized. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.

Why I walk

There are a few moments in life that inspire us to take actions. Over the past several years, a number of close friends or friends of those friends have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. This has become my motivation for wanting to participate in the Challenge Walk.


For three days in September, I will be walking fifty miles from Carlsbad to downtown San Diego with my friend Susie and her mother who over 35 years ago was diagnosed with this disease as well. Today they are lucky enough to participate in the Challenge together for the 9th time and I am honored to be walking with them, for them and for the 400,000 people in the United States living with MS. The Society addresses the challenges of each person affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, collaborating with MS organizations around the world, ad providing programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move forward.



This year’s walk goal is to raise $1 million and I have made a personal commitment to raise $2500 to participate. I hope to surpass this amount, but I need your help to do it!


Please consider supporting me with a tax-deductible donation to help me reach my fundraising goal. I’m very grateful for whatever amount you can give. Visit www.myMSchallenge.com to donate online or mail your donation to the address below by September 9th. Please make sure to include my name in the memo section of your check.





I am honored to have been invited to participate in this event and I encourage you to join by supporting me. If we do our part we can help create a world free of MS!



All donations help.

Thank you in advance for your support,
