Ange’s long walk for MS

Ange’s long walk for MS

OCEAN GROVE’S Angela Hann walked 100km from Melbourne to Sorrento last Friday.
Motivated by friends and families living with Multiple Sclerosis, Ange set off with two work colleagues for the 23 hour nonstop expedition.
“We were originally thinking Melbourne to Sydney, but this was a lot more realistic and still stood for MS,” Ange laughed.
Leaving Melbourne at 7.30am and arriving at the Sorrento pub at 7am Saturday morning, it was hot and humid. Angela’s inspiration throughout the trek was her cousin Rachel.
“Rachel was diagnosed in her early thirties. She could not have been happier about the walk, she was texting me all through the night, it was fantastic,” Ange said.
The personal connection pushed Angela to support the MS cause and appeal of MS. So far the walk has raised $2200.
“A highlight of the walk was meeting so many nice people. One guy named Tim came up to us and pulled out a $100 note. He was very generous,” Ange recalled.
Also raising funds is the third Ocean Grove MS 24 Hour Mega Swim which will be held on August 30 and 31 at the Bellarine Aquatic & Sports Centre.
