2023 Melbourne MS Mega Badminton


Hello friends!

It’s nearly that time of year again… I’m excited to share that I will be taking on the 2023 Melbourne MS Mega Badminton – 12-hour Challenge at the end of April and I’d love to get your support again!

Last year I stayed and played for the entire 24 hours, playing through the infamous “graveyard shift” between 12 am and 6 am with a few determined teammates. This year my team, “Goodminton!”, will be playing against at least 5 other teams for 12 hours this year to fundraise and support people living with multiple sclerosis from April 29th to April 30th!

I am taking up this challenge again because multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition, and the average age of diagnosis is 30 with 25,000 Australians living with MS. It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely, so I could not imagine waking up one day and being unable to do the everyday things I usually take for granted, such as playing badminton, which I am sure you all know how important that is to me!

As a graduate optometrist, I have had a few great discussions with patients about their experiences with multiple sclerosis. However, these discussions are always just a brief glimpse into the lives of a diverse range of individuals. So I hope that I can contribute further to supporting the wider community outside of my clinical work in any way, big or small, for people living with multiple sclerosis!

My goal is to raise $250 to fund life-changing Go for Gold Scholarships and vital support services for people living with multiple sclerosis, and I would love to have your support this year!

I appreciate your support – it means a lot!
