Well we are just a week away and it really does feel like our countdown is coming to an end. Since we made this decision back in May and then had Chris accepted to the program in July, we have been counting down the days until he would start his transplant. We are just one week to go.
Since I am back to working at home, Chris is finding new ways to entertain himself throughout the day. He is feeling really good and isn't sleeping the 12 or 13 hours anymore, so he has been doing some grocery shopping, some cleaning and he even makes me breakfast! I could seriously get use to this :)
In the rest of his spare time, he has taken on the role as Team Captain for Team Glazier, our team for the 2011 Walk for MS in Ottawa.
On Sunday, May 15, Chris and I will be taking part in the 2011 Walk for MS. This year will mark the 20th anniversary of the walk, which raises money for the MS Society of Canada. While we can walk as individuals, the MS Society also has the option to build teams, so that we can fundraise, walk and support Chris together.
For our family and friends that are interested in joining Team Glazier and want to make the trip to Ottawa that weekend, you can register online at: http://mssociety.ca/en/events/scwalk/online-fundraising.htm
Each team member is responsible for raising $125, but once we get our team together I think we can set a much higher goal! Today is the first day of registration, but if you start early it gives you lots of time to collect funds.
Can't make the trip? Or just want make a donation to our Team?
You can sign up to do the walk in your area (dates and times vary). You only need a few friends to make a Team or you can walk as an individual. The walk is either 2km or 5km so anyone can do it! If you can't make the walk, but still want to make a difference, you can send a pledge to Team Glazier online at the same URL: http://mssociety.ca/en/events/scwalk/online-fundraising.htm Just search for Team Glazier!
