It's been a few weeks since my last blog, and though there is plenty to write about, it's difficult for me to 1) sit down and write about everything
that has been happening, and 2) write in this space as I know we are moving the www.msruntheus.com
website, and this blog, to a new host! (YIPPEE!).
Right now MS Run the US, Inc. is in a transitional period with our latest project set to launch as soon as the new website is built (hopefully the end of this month or early February). I understand more then anyone that we truly need to have some great systems in place in order for the MS Run the US - 2013 Relay project to work, and that is something that we have been diligently working on. With a small organization like ours, things may not always move as quickly, but as long as it's moving forward and managed properly, then I know everything I am envisioning will fall into place.
In the meantime, I should really sit down and write about some experiences I've had this holiday season...a visit to the neurology clinic at UW-Madison, the 2012 MS Run the US Calendar, mom's big adventure Christmas Eve, awesome fundraising & volunteering opportunities for YOU, and much, much more! While I sort out exactly how to tell you everything while we are transitioning, I'll leave you with this video...
For a Christmas surprise for mom, one of my clients - Nancy Turner of Knollwood Farm - offered to give mom a special horse back riding lesson. We shot this video of taking mom into the barn, introducing her to the horse she would be riding - Forest - and her efforts to get on the horse and ride for an hour. Mom grew up her whole life riding horses, so this Christmas surprise was an extra special one for her...Mom's Christmas Surprise Video
Thank you for your continued support & I look forward to the exciting 2012 year we have planned ahead for MS Run the US, Inc.!
Please let me know if there is anything that you'd like to see us do better as we stay true to our mission of raising donations to fund the research for a cure of multiple sclerosis, and of raising disease awareness nationwide!
Happy New Year...make it an amazing 2012!
