I try to keep things pretty light here on Bows & Sequins, but since you guys responded so well to this post, I hope you don’t mind me reaching out to you about a cause very near and dear to me. I normally don’t feel comfortable sharing this much about my personal life, especially when it’s on a not-so-happy note, but I figure spreading the word is the least I can do.
As some of you know, my mom was officially diagnosed with MS in 2009. I will be doing the “Climb of the Top” next weekend on March 3rd to support her and everyone else who is battling Multiple Sclerosis. I’ll be climbing the 66 flights of stairs to the top of the Rockefeller Center Observation Deck to help create a world without MS. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from Climb to the Top to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today.
It’s kind of ironic that this climb is to the “Top of the Rock.” The very first time I visited New York (November 2010), my parents and I took the elevator to the Top of the Rock for some nighttime views of the city! I’m hoping for gorgeous daytime views of the city after my climb next Sunday!
If you’re able, I’d be ever so grateful for your help in supporting the National MS Society!
