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
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?
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 the past two years, we have launched the MS Readathon at my school. Funds raised have gone towards special camps for families with MS. Last May,
I visited the first one to be held in NSW and saw where our money went. You can see my video below.
