Donna, Martha and Michelle are ready for the MS Walk Run + Roll!
DATE: 27 May 2022
Donna, Martha and Michelle will be hitting the track for the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Walk Run + Roll event on Sunday 29 May!
This is the first time participating in the event for Yooralla client Donna and employees Martha and Michelle, who will be taking part in the 5km walk around Albert Park Lake.
For Martha and Michelle, plans to participate in the event were made “as part of our Admin team’s health and wellbeing—getting together outside of work in a social environment and at the same time supporting a good cause.”
Martha is “feeling great leading up to the event. I have been walking and using the treadmill when I can,” she said.
“The 5km walk is not too difficult and it’s all about getting out and about in the fresh air, raising awareness for a disability,” Martha said.
Donna has also been training hard for the event, “I have been walking in my walker. I am doing four laps of the house now, once or twice a week.”
“I am so excited because I missed out on the Melbourne Marathon last year as I had to isolate. I have been waiting a long time for this!”
“I will do most of [the 5km walk] in my power wheelchair, and the last 400m in my walker,” Donna said.
We can’t wait to see Donna, Martha and Michelle cross the finish line on Sunday and will be sharing pictures across our social media channels!
Donna and Martha are both accepting donations for their walks, to raise awareness and funding for MS research.
