Ok guys, here it is! come 'run a myelin my shoes' with me in october! i would love to have a huge group of us running together - get together a team or let us know if you want to be on a team but can't find anyone to run with and i'll try to coordinate some teams too! there may even be some prizes for top fundraisers 🙂 join the fundraising team (link below) and share!
in 2017, cheryl hile was the first person with ms to run a marathon in all 7 continents, and she did it in 12 months! i met cheryl at her last marathon in sydney. she was a huge inspiration to both andrew and i and we have kept in touch. this year, her goal is to have the largest group of people with ms running together, either in person or virtually.
on october 21st 2018, people from all over the world with ms, and those supporting them, will race with cheryl. she will be running the detroit marathon with a big team over there. there are people running virtually in europe, asia, africa and even antarctica. i want to create a huge team to 'run' with her in australia and fundraise for ms research while we're at it!
we will be running at the sri chinmoy mara-fun relay event in centennial park sydney, it provides an opportunity for people to conquer the marathon distance, either solo or in teams of 2, 3 or 4. this makes it accessible to everyone and means no excuses! let's make this a huge, worldwide event with as many people as we can involved - running, cheering, fundraising and spreading awareness so we can finally kiss goodbye to ms!
if you can't make it to the sydney event, it would be awesome if you could run virtually with us around australia on the 21st, either at an organised event or with your friends! maybe even create a marathon relay?! please join my fundraising team so you can share, donate, recruit more team members and generally be awesome!
