This September, we’re celebrating something pretty big here at Not Today, MS. This September will mark five years since my MS Diagnosis. Five years of CHOOSING JOY over fear, anxiety, tingling fingers, vertigo, medication side-effects, fatigue, pain, worry and anger. We decided in September 2015 that this disease would not define who I am. That we would always find ways to celebrate life and live it to the fullest.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate all that God has done in our lives in the last five years than to run a 5K with my friends! In the world of COVID, we can’t have an official race. No timers or medals. But, we will have t-shirts and you can run/walk socially distanced with us or you can run/walk on your own wherever you are!
SO, you’ve read this far and you want to participate. You have two options…
Here’s how to register!
- First, decide if you would like a t-shirt! If you do, you can purchase one by clicking HERE. All proceeds from the sale of these shirts will be donated directly to The National MS Society. The cost is $25.00! *HURRY* T-shirt sales close on August 15, 2020. The shirts will be printed at that time and will be delivered early September so you will have yours for the race if you want to wear it! Buying a t-shirt automatically registers you!
- If you do not want a t-shirt, you can donate directly to my Finish MS Page on the National MS Society. Suggested donation is $25.00, but anything would be welcome! You can make direct donations HERE. By donating at that link, you will automatically be registered!
- Once you have registered either by buying a shirt or donating, make plans to run or walk with us on Saturday, September 26! If you are local (Elizabethtown, Kentucky), meet us at Freeman Lake Park at 8:00 am by the Tennis Courts. I have a route mapped out for us and we will have a great time! I’ll bring hand sanitizer, bananas and waters to celebrate with after :).
- If you are not local, we want you to run or walk or do something active wherever you are on September 26. Then we want you to post pictures online using the hashtag #NotTodayMS5K so we can see your sweet faces!
That’s it. Simple. Easy. And we all get to celebrate and show some love to an organization very near and dear to our hearts. We can’t wait to run with you!
