Walk MS 2011 Reno/Sparks

We had a wonderful time at the walk this year.  My family, friend's and co-worker's came and showed their support.  The weather was actually perfect for me.  It was overcast but it wasn't cold or too windy.  I didn't have to wear sun glasses or anything.  I couldn't have asked for better weather myself.  I was asked to speak about MS, how it affects me and why I walk for MS.

 This is the first half of my speech.  Afterwards a lot of people told me that I had them in tears, but in a good way.  I couldn't believe how much it affected everyone.  A few people want me to speak at dinner's and other events.  This is something I have always wanted to do but that doesn't mean it's what God wants for me.  We will see, I will have to pray about it and ask God how He wants to use me.

My Mom bought a raffle ticket and gave it to me.  I won brunch for 2 at Rapscallion's.  We've never eaten there before but everyone's says that they have great food.

Our team collected over $4000 for the MS Society.  I know the funds will be put to good use and I am so grateful to all who donated and helped our team raise money.

  1. I watched your video - it's great that you are speaking out about MS. I was diagnosed 2 yrs ago and I am still getting used the idea. Used to say why me.. but reading your blog and how you are speaking out..God knows why he trusts certain folks with burdens that only HE can carry. Just wanted to say keep writing about this. you never know who you touch from thousands of miles away..K
