Meet Melissa Quirk
Melissa Quirk is one of our valued Kiss Goodbye to MS fundraisers. Since being diagnosed with MS in 2015, Melissa has been dedicated to contributing to MS reach and, ultimately, to find a cure for MS. She developed a passion for raising awareness for the disease and keeps inspiring us with her strength and dedication!
In June this year, Melissa took on the challenge of participating in the 12km Bay to Bay fun run held in Woy Woy, on the NSW Central Coast. Despite knowing this wouldn’t be easy due to her symptoms of clonus, spasticity and balance issues, Melissa committed to the challenge. Prior to the run, Melissa said her legs were feeling better than ever, and this was proved to be true when she successfully completed the 12km run. Along the way, Melissa raised important awareness for MS and an incredible $6,595 for ongoing research into MS.
Melissa you are a massive inspiration to us, and we are proud to have you as a part of our amazing Kiss Goodbye to MS community. We would like to thank and congratulate Melissa for her successful run and her huge support of the Kiss Goodbye to MS Campaign.
