MS Challenge Walk- San Diego, Sept 2013
by Eileen Sonnefeld
(Murrieta, CA, United States)
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.
