I am about to do my ninth MS Readathon and have been their Ambassador for the past five years.
The MS Readathon has not only sharpened my reading skills but also increased my awareness of the condition. This is a disease that happens in the central nervous system. Sclerosis means ‘scar’ or ‘hardened tissue’ and multiple is used because the damage usually happens in many places along the nerves. We do not know the cause and there is no cure.
2015 I was honoured to become an MS Readathon Ambassador for the first time. It gave me the chance to visit schools and encourage kids to do the MS Readathon. I created this website so I could share my love of books with other 'tweens. I held a bookstall
and worked hard to help raise money for MS.
Last year, we launched the MS Readathon at my school. It was a very successul year. For the first time,
funds raised went towards special camps for families with MS. I visited the first one in NSW and saw first-hand where our money went. You can see my video below.
The MS Readathon is something I look forward to as much every year as I do reading every day. It feels satisfying putting my passion for books towards
During the MS Readathon,
I like to think about other children like me who are busy enjoying stories and doing something remarkable towards a common cause. Isn’t it great that everyone can participate, no matter what their reading level is or how much money they raise?
