Angies Story: Fundraising for MS...
I first met Angie Randall when her and I (and hockey player Bryan Bickell) were invited to be part of a segment on The Whitney Reynolds Show. In “Moving Mountains With MS” (more on that later) we share our stories and insights on mindsets and our Multiple Sclerosis’.
Angie’s energy and enthusiasm is incredible as she undeniably has an impact on the direction of “our” disease. She’s raised over $53,554.00 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in the short time I’ve known her! Mid April she hosted a fundraising soiree 'Spring for a Cure' and to support the team she formed “Oscar’s Mom” for the national/annual “Walk MS” event. Funds subsidize research as well in the many programs and assistance the society provides to the MS community.
So, in finding out about the 'Spring For a Cure' I was anxious to donate a piece of my photography for the silent auction. The image I chose was “Luscious”. When Angie asked if there was anything to add about the significance of "Luscious" as a print, I immediately thought of Angie, her presence and demeanor and then some:
“Distinctive. Unstoppable - Like all of us, prevailing over obstacles placed in our way. Captured 2010 - a day in May, Chicago”
As fate had it the winner of Luscious was Beth Prystowsky a perfect match and now another new MS friend. Beth is equally as amazing spearheading a very relevant website, blog and MS resource for all.
