Ready to roll for MS

Kyneton’s Carole Hemmings is ready to roll for the MS fundraiser event at Albert Park Lake.
She will switch her wheelchair for her walker to take on 5km on May 30 to raise funds and awareness for the disease she battles.
Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis herself in her 30s, Carole says its a condition that can be difficult for people to understand as symptoms vary from person to person.
MS is a condition of the central nervous system, interfering with nerve impulses within the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. Symptoms can include vision loss, pain, fatigue and impaired coordination.
“It can be very debilitating and affects people in different ways,” Carole said.
“I often experience pins and needles and get very fatigued. The first sign of MS for me was continuous tingling in my hands. I can get a numb feeling in my legs and at times it can be really hard to do normal everyday things. I have good days and bad days. It can be really frustrating.”
Through her entry into the MS Walk, Carole hopes to raise awareness and funds to support those with the disease.
She has spent many hours training at the gym and improving her strength and fitness for the day.
