I am raising funds to change the lives of people like myself, who are living with MS.

On Sunday 13 June, I'll be riding 100km in the MS Brissie to the Bay. I have never ridden this far in my life but have decided to sign up for the challenge to raise funds for a very worthy cause, and I need your support.

June 24 2020 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I was suffering from a loss of sensation and numbness in my lower limbs off and on for six months. At first I had assumed it was frostbite because it started after my first day skiing for far too long. But when the numbness began to ascend up my legs I knew that couldn’t simply be frostbite. After blood work, an x-ray, CT scan, and nerve conduction study didn’t provide any answers. I decided to pay for an MRI of my lumbar spine. 
Six days after booking the MRI I was sitting in my GP’s office being told I had a lesion on my spine that was causing the numbness and that it was likely MS. 

Two months later I was in a hospital bed hooked up to an IV for 5 days being filled with drugs that would remove my immune system thus preventing it from continuing to attack my nervous system. 

It was the end of September when I had my first experience with MS Qld. I got a call from a lovely gentleman who patiently explained the Blood Watch service to me. It is a service that helps ensure MS patients get the support they need to stay on top of their monthly blood work.
Blood Watch is just one of the many services MS Qld offer to help people suffering from MS continue to live the fullest lives they can. I really can’t overstate how meaningful it is to have resources like this available when you’re trying to cope with new or ongoing disabilities. 

I've taken on the challenge to rise 100km in the effort to raise money for MS QLD who provide support, care, information, and fund research for a cure.


Our incredible team, the FloodMapp Flyers have banded together in an aim to raise $10,000 for MS QLD!! Let's do this together.

Did you know:

  • On average, more than 10 Australians are diagnosed with MS every week

  • The average age of diagnosis is just 30 years of age.

  • Three out of four Australians with MS are women

Your support will help fund essential services like physiotherapy, occupational therapy, counselling and symptom management, as well as MS research to look for better treatments and ultimately a cure for the disease.

Please DONATE to support our ride to help ensure no one faces MS alone.

First 15km are grand. 15-40 are good. 40-60 are ok. 60+ just takes grit - and you have lots of that bud. Kill it.
