Treking for MS Research

Caroline Williams is an amazing woman who has been walking nearly 200km each year for ten years- all to raise vital funds for research into MS!

The Great New Zealand Trek is run by one of our colleagues in New Zealand. The trek was founded on the idea of raising funds for MS research by walking, cycling or horse riding the length of New Zealand, North to Sound, around 200 kms each year, with Stage 1 starting in 2006.

Born in Christchurch, the trek not only allows Caroline to raise funds for MS Research, but it is also a great excuse for her to get back to a country that she loves! With a passion for jet-boating, mountaineering, photography and the country, it’s a win-win situation for Caroline.

Over her fundraising journey, she has not only raised over $5000, but also generated an incredible amount of awareness about MS and its affects. This year marks Stage 12 for the trek, with a growing number of both Australian and New Zealand family and friends joining Caroline. There’s only three years to go until they reach the bottom and finish the trek!

The Kiss Goodbye to MS fundraising campaign has become a special community. We love speaking to amazing people who have their own unique stories. It is people like Caroline who have such motivation and drive that are taking us one step closer to Kissing Goodbye to MS once and for all.
