Hiking 3000km along Te Araroa to raise Multiple Sclerosis awareness!

Otago

Kia Ora,

This year I am hiking from Cape Reinga to Bluff along Te Araroa and hope to raise awareness and much-needed support for the Multiple Sclerosis community!

I was diagnosed with MS in 2017 when I was 24. You can read about my story here https://www.msnz.org.nz/blake-avid-traveller-and-positive-thinker/

If you google MS you'll find that for every story of hope, there are 100 more stories of despair. This isn't a fair representation of the MS community! I wish I had known that as I scrolled through endless stories showing nothing but wheelchairs and disability. Hopefully, through sharing this journey, we can highlight a story of hope especially for those newly diagnosed and their loved ones.

Any funds you can spare would help provide those in our community with the support necessary to help them through their MS journey.

Thank you so much for your support! Appreciate you all x
