Last Sunday (30 April 2017) we took part in the MS Fun Run in Sydney. It was a great event, supporting one of our BEXI runners who has Multiple Sclerosis. She is a constant inspiration to all of us. ❤️
A few of our team members signed up to do the 10km fun run – pushing them well and truly out of their comfort zones. If others were struggling with MS on a daily basis, then surely they could attempt to run 10km. None of them had ever attempted to run 10km, so they were feeling very nervous and apprehensive. On the day they teamed up with each other and ran together the entire way. Crossing the finish line, beaming with a huge sense of achievement! Some were rather emotional at accomplishing something they thought they could never do. It was very special to share their excitement.
Disappointingly, the course measured short and was only 8km – due to road restrictions by the Council. So whilst the girls felt denied the opportunity to achieve their goal – they also realised that they WOULD have achieved their 10km goal on the day. Why??? Because they had engaged their minds and were mentally prepared for 10km.
This proves the point beautifully – “you can if you think you can”.
Well done to everyone who took part in the MS Fun Run – it was an honour to support such a worth cause. Big thanks to our BEXI community for all their fundraising efforts!
Special mention to young Amelie Chan (8yrs) who was the fastest U18 female on the day – woohoo, we have a BEXI champ in the making 🏆
