The Moonwalk Challenge Nears the Finish Line

The 6-month Moonwalk Challenge is coming to an end and my hardworking team has proven we are much better at walking than raising money for worthy causes. It looks like we'll exceed our goal of walking enough miles to circumnavigate the moon, but we've raised a pitifully small amount for the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis.

I've personally walked an average of 26 miles a week. With more than 500 miles under my feet, I'm one of the lowest mile people on my 10 person team. I feel bad for only raising $225 for the cause. I'm glad I don't earn my living via fund raising. Clearly, I'd be unemployed.

MS is a horrid disease that strikes both children and adults. I personally know two adults who were struck in their prime. Neither is a close friend, but it is still difficult and humbling to watch relatively young people fight to keep normalacy in their lives while an unseen predator saps more of their physical abilities each day.

Accelerated Cure is a four star charity working to find the cure that will eliminate MS. You can help!

Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit public charity. When you donate to the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis (which is rated a four star charity by Charity Navigator) via this link: Donate Here your tax deductible donation (US tax payers only) will go directly to the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis.

Thanks for posting this and you walked! I don't think there's anyone who doesn't know someone with this awful disease.

Thanks Conda,

I agree and think it's time we stamped this one out! I'm still walking every day, but don't think I'm going to make my miles.
