Hey there. My name is Melanie and 15 years ago I was diagnosed with MS. The MS Society has asked me to Captain the MS Race team for this years Bluenose Marathon. The irony this year is that I am unable to run. But I am going to walk the 10km this coming Bluenose weekend in November. Despite some health issues, this is how I celebrate my health and acknowledge my MS. I am thankful that I was a candidate for Lemtrada – which gave me the platform to get healthy and to live my life. Without research dollars, these disease modifying drugs, such as Lemtrada would not exhaust. MS has taught me, to give back and to have hope. Which is what you are all doing – giving back and giving me and thousands of others… hope for our future.
Please give some thought to supporting this fundraising event by donation or joining my team and running or walking with us.
Every summer runners of all ages and fitness levels come together in Halifax to find and conquer their personal challenge at the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon. Now it's time for you to join Team MS and discover that this team will offer you an experience you will never forget.
