You all know how healing I believe dance is for the mind, body and soul, so to say that I am over the moon thrilled to be a part of the MS Dance Challenge with one of my greatest friends and heroes, Carrie Sniderman, is an understatement.
What is the #MSDanceChallenge, you ask?
To generate awareness for Multiple Sclerosis, raise funds to find a cure and have a little fun while doing so, Dana Szwec has launched an MS Dance Challenge or as I like to think of it, MS Dance Off!
To take on the challenge:
- Video yourself and/or friends dancing.
- Give a proven fact about MS.
- Challenge 2 friends to do the same.
- Encourage anyone who is able to donate!
To find out more about multiple sclerosis, read all about this disease on the MS Canada website at https://beta.mssociety.ca/about-ms, and for those of you that are able, you can donate at https://beta.mssociety.ca/get-involved
For our MS fact, we wanted to answer, why a dance challenge?
One of the most debilitating symptoms of MS is poor coordination, causing difficulty in the simplest of daily activities, like walking, eating, pouring liquids, and personal hygiene – making the pleasures of dancing a bit of a dream. We hope that through research into a cure, that will change. That is one of the things that a donation will help with.
So we’ve shown you ours … now show us yours! The #MSDanceOff is on!
