100km in one day to raise awareness and money for Multiple Sclerosis. One of the fastest growing diseases in North America.
On March 19th of 2020 at 4:17am I awoke to mentally prepare myself for what was about to be a 13 hour day of paddling on the water. I started at 5am and finished at 6pm that day. I set out with three goals in mind; to raise awareness for MS in support of my Mother who suffers from the disease and others like her, to challenge the fundraising ideas and lastly but most certainly not least, to create a scenario enabling me to feel for one day the pain I believe a person living with MS would feel every day. I was about to put my skills and experience to test by completing a 100km continuous coastal paddle.
