In light of my recent fitness kick I am doing the MS 5k fun run this weekend and have left my fundraising efforts to the very last minute! Our very close family friend, Gary, was diagnosed with MS a few years back. He is my parents age (mid 50's) and until recently, his wife Sheryl has been caring for him in their home. But, recently that became impossible, so he is now living in a retirement village where he has 24 hour care. Our Team is called Gazza's Demons (he is a huge Melbourne FC fan) and Gary will be joining us for the walk, which is so exciting! Here is a picture of Me with Gary and another family friend, Amanda, at his sons wedding last year:Gary and his family play a huge part in my child hood memories, and it has been very sad to see him decline so much over the past few years. I am so proud to be representing his team this weekend and hope to raise lots of money and awareness for MS. If you would like to sponsor me please click here to donate, it will be going to a great cause!
