Team MS making a difference

3rd October 2018

Team MS runners, walkers and wheelers stood out in red as they took part in the Westpac City-Bay Fun Run, presented by Sunday Mail last month, to raise money and awareness for people living with multiple sclerosis.

Sixteen amazing Team MS fundraisers came together to raise over $8,500!! The wonderful generosity of our fundraisers, and their sponsors, will help us to fund essential services to people with MS and support research into a cure.

For one of our top fundraisers, Jenna, this event was a chance to further promote health and wellness to others affected by MS. As a young woman with MS, Jenna’s mission is to show others that you can still be fit and healthy with an MS diagnosis.

“I had wanted to do the City-Bay for years. If I can still be fit and running City-Bay and things like that, it is not the end of the world. You can still live a full life,” Jenna says.

“It’s been really rewarding and quite exciting when you see that someone’s donated.”

The City-Bay is a 12km run or walk held annually. It starts from the Festival Theatre on King William Road and finishes at Colley Terrace in Glenelg. There are also 6km and 3km options available.

For years, organisers of the City-Bay have used the event’s platform to help connect runners with charities and causes they care about, so people can now use the event to fundraise for their favourite charity. The event also allows individuals to achieve personal fitness goals, and epitomises the MS Society’s live well philosophy.

Thank you to our runners, walkers, donors, and supporters for your help in raising vital funds for people affected by MS.

It’s not too late to donate to the MS Society SA/NT, Jenna or one of our other amazing runners, visit our Team MS fundraising page.
