FIVE YEARS A FIGHTER
Guest post written by Rosemarie P., a MuckFest MS® participant in Detroit
In 2013, multiple sclerosis changed my life. I was a young mother of two, and I was scared. I wasn’t sure what I could do, but I knew I had to fight.
Then I heard about MuckFest MS, and I knew it was something I wanted to try.
Our first year of MuckFest MS, we had a team of over 60 people, we raised over $7,000, and I felt the love and support of not only my family and friends, but strangers who were in this battle with me. I knew after that first year that this was something I would continue to do as long as I am able.
A small team traveled from Detroit to Chicago. I was pregnant with my last child and could not participate, but still felt an outpouring of love.
I’m not a runner, but I am a fighter. I will continue to fight until we find a cure. I am blessed to have so much to fight for!
THANK YOU, Rosemarie, for sharing your story! This event wouldn’t be possible without passionate Muckers like you and team!
