Walking A World Of Friendships For MS - 5km at a time
Hello! My name is Angela Kirby and I hail from Pickering, Ontario, Canada.
Comedian, actor, writer Billy Crystal's late mother used to say, "Do something special for your Birthday. Whatever you do, celebrate the fact that you're here, and that people love you and you love them. We only do this once." ("Still Foolin' 'em" - Billy Crystal)
And that's exactly what I'm going to do in 2015!
I'm celebrating my Big Seven-Zero Birthday, as well as acknowledging the 20th anniversary of my first Multiple Sclerosis (MS) exacerbation, by doing 5Km WALKS with family, friends, and anyone else who will join us, in various towns and cities around the world, to raise funds specifically for MS Research in each of the countries I am visiting - because when the cure is found, everyone with MS anywhere in the world, will benefit.
I also hope to raise awareness of this escalating disease that attacks both young and old. When people hear or read about a nutty Senior from Canada doing such a WALK in their town or city, or even just their airport in some places, they might just wonder what and why!
As I do my WALKS in South Africa - at the airport in Johannesburg and in Cape Town itself, I hope you will consider sponsoring my efforts. Oh! And please know that you are most welcome to join me if I'm in your area. Now, come on, what's a mere 5 Km between friends!
