Default Sponsorship for Multiple Sclerosis

I posted this before and assume that you were all skint with Christmas coming up to part with a few of your tax free dirhams..

(Apart from the lovely BC who did sponsor me (thank you!!)

I am doing Ironman South Africa in April and raising money for MS society that has provided an invaluable support and treatment to someone very close to me (my wife) and countless others

MS is a disease that can affect any of us at any time, some of us may have MS but just don't realize it yet...(my wife was diagnosed in April 2010 and the consultant believes that the symptoms commenced as far back as 2008)

There is no cure for MS, but with research and funding, hopefully there will be improvements to help people living with MS.

I'm not going to put my 'Just giving' site up on here as it will just attract nosey barstewards. If you would like to help, it would be greatly appreciated and the beers will be on me after the race. Pop me a PM and ill send you the justgiving page URL.

cheers

For any one unfamiliar with MS you should visit http://www.nationalmssociety.org/abo...sis/index.aspx I'm sure we all know of someone with MS (sadly I have known more than my fair share) the support the MS society gives peoples is invaluable. Not only does it increase the quality of life for the sufferer but also for their family and carers. I know there are so many charities it becomes impossible to choose which ones to support but every little helps.

Good luck with the fund raising Commander!

Good luck Commander with the training and reaching your target, I too have a family member with ms and a good friend also and know that more research is required to help with this illness and urge others to contribute.

Wouldn't know who to ask. I would be happy to have a small BE logo on my tri suit in exchange for a 'hefty' donation ;-)

The MS centre are also giving me some Iron on logos for my tri suit and some stickers for my bike. I'd be happy to do that also.
