MS Challenge Walk- San Diego, Sept 2013

Woohoo!!

Woohoo!!

Hi Everyone!

With hopes and prayers I am going to attempt the Challenge Walk, which is a 50 mile, 3-day walk for MS in September of this year (2013). I was diagnosed with MS in December of 2012, but, like most everyone else, had symptoms for YEARS before finally getting diagnosed.

About 5 years ago I was training for a 1/2 marathon and MS sat me on my butt! Honestly, I'm not sure if I am going to be able to do the whole walk, but I'm going to give it my best shot, darn it!! I have created a team called "Eileen Towards A Cure" but since you have to raise $2500.00 to walk, it looks like I'm going to be a team of one.

But that's ok! My family and friends are going to a bike ride in Las Vegas in November, so I'm not holding the Challenge Walk against them. :)
So, if any of you want to walk with me (or donate), I'd be happy to have a walking buddy! You can find me on Facebook or through the MS Society.

My name is Eileen Sonnefeld (Ares-Sonnefeld on FB) and my link to the MS society is here: http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR?px=11726281&pg=personal&fr_id=21029&et=e269RGPzJcL0swhqF17o4A

I can't do the 1/2 marathon that I had always wanted to do, but this will have to be my trade-off.

Wish me luck!!
Stay strong everyone.
Eileen

A local comedy club in town - Aces Comedy Club in Murrieta, Ca is doing a fundraiser for me! For the next 8 weeks (until the middle of August 2013), they will donate $5.00 for every ticket sold that uses the promo code "Eileen", which is for my team "Eileen towards a cure" for the 3-day walk in San Diego! How cool is that?!?!
Not only can we support a local business, but we will give to a great cause AND have a night of laughs!!!
I'm so excited! I hope to raise a boat-load of donations!!!!

Stay well everyone,
Eileen
