THE STORY:

<meta charset="utf-8" />

Crystal won the coin toss for first chairty run, and she chose to do a Mud Run for Multiple Sclerosis. Here's what she has to say:

Having multiple sclerosis means that you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. Chances are you too know someone with MS, like I do, but thanks to National MS Society's research, advocacy, education, support, and modern medicine, you might not even know it. Christine (pictured with me back in college to the left) was diagnosed with MS in 2010, at age 26, and we're here to raise money to help find a cure.

Originally I had decided we'd run a 5k to raise money for the National MS Society, but I like to be different. So I thought I'd force Andre into a Mud Run which is totally crazy, and insane considering I have relatively little upper body strength (read: none). But if Christine can live with MS and be super awesome about it, then we can jump through some tires, right? We need to raise money so that we can get a CURE and stop this thing, and in exchange we'll climb up cargo nets, run through vast pits of mud and willingly opt in to something called a "sludge crawl".

See more details on the mud run here: http://www.machonemudrun.com/map.html

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter will use funds collected from Walk MS to support research to find a cure, and also provide education, support, and advocacy that address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we choose to walk for those who sometimes can't, because we choose to donate to the Walk, we are getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."

Please help support this effort by clicking DONATE.  Or, you can go even one step further and help us fundraise for this cause by clicking JOIN THE TEAM and share your own project page with your friends and family.

Thank you for donating to help Christine and the estimated 200 people a week who are diagnosed with MS.
