I can't wait to participate in my eighth MS Readathon and it is an honour to return as an Ambassador for the fourth time.
Over the 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.
In 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.
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 something useful. This year, funds raised by the MS Readathon go toward sending kids on awesome Family
Camps where they can learn about MS and have fun with their family.
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?
