Team “M” – MS Walk – 2009
This morning Team “M” took part in the MS Walk in Denver, Colorado. As a team, we raised over a thousand dollars and set a good goal to beat for next year. Check out the video…
My beautiful wife was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) just a few months ago. We have taken this head on and we are not going to let it get the best of us! It was awesome to have Team “M” support us in the walk, not just because we needed support in the walk but, because their support today was an example of the support we will have in the struggles to come.
Statistics say that 1 in 540 Coloradans have MS, and 2 in 3 are women. It’s a serious deal. Denver has one of the highest concentrations of MS diagnosis in the world. Crazy! I am so thankful that we found an awesome doctor for Meghan and received a diagnosis early in this battle because, I hear, most find out later in life. The MS Walk is a powerful movement and I am proud to be a part of the fight! We are all still new to this but I want to be involved as much as possible so that I can be the best support to my wife that I can be. I have a lot to learn and the Walk for Multiple Sclerosis was a great stepping stone in the journey to come. One of the volunteers Meghan and I talked to today said, “MS is not who you are. You are not MS, you are yourself with MS.”
