MS Beaches Walk-a-thon is Underway!

The MS Beaches Walk-a-thon provides an opportunity for the beaches community to come together for a 3K walk or run along the boardwalk while raising money for MS. On September 12th at 9:30 am we will meet at the RC Harris Water Filtration Plant (easternmost point of the beach - near Neville Park) to begin our walk together. At the end of your 3K journey enjoy a BBQ, refreshments and raffle prizes with friends and family!

Each participant is asked to fundraise a minimum of $100 to take part in the walk. For every $10 raised over the minimum, you will receive a ballot for your chance to win one of our raffle prizes including a one year membership to the Royal Botanical Gardens! Register before August 27th and get a free MS t-shirt and wrist band! (Wrist bands will also be on sale after the walk). All money raised with this event will go to the MS Society of Canada to support research and those living with MS.

To register, please send an email to msbeacheswalk@yahoo.ca

Hope to see you at the beach!

Music For MS Benefit Concert

This October my team and I will be heading to Tanzania to climb Africa's tallest mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro, in order to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis research. A portion of the funds raised will also be shared with the Ilkurot Primary School to educate the poorest of the poor children of the Masai Tribe.

This concert is just one of many fundraising events helping us reach our goal of raising $1 Million.

Hope to see you there!

I love remixes of old jazz classics so when I find one you will definitely hear about it - especially if it's Nina Simone. This weeks gem was Felix Da Housecat's remix of Nina Simone's Sinnerman. The song's been around since the beginning of the 20th century but wasn't recorded by Simone 'til her 1965 album Pastel Blues. For more jazz remixes check out the Verve Remixed albums.

MS Climb 2009 - Kilimanjaro!

I just got involved with a new fundraising event with the Multiple Sclerosis Society and its really exciting! My goal is to personally raise $10,000 for the MS society, and just like the bike rides and walks that they have every year, this year they are taking it to the next level. Along with my team, I will be summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa in support of MS. Every bit of money raised will go towards finding a cure for this terrible disease, and I hope that I can count on your help in trying to make MS a disease of the past.
