A Few Words From The CEO March 2015

A Few Words From Therese Russel, CEO from the February/March Newsletter

We are off to a busy start and holidays seem like a life time ago! Multiple Sclerosis celebrates turning 50 this year and to be very precise – on 5th March 2015.  What an incredible journey it has been and continues to be.  After receiving a special grant from the Lotteries Commission, we have engaged the services of historian writer Ruth Greenway to record the history of our Society which will be available on our website later in the year.  If you have a great recall of our 50 years or know someone else who does, please contact the office and let us know.  We have compiled a list of people to interview however we are very likely to miss someone important off our list, so your help would really be appreciated.

Martin Shepherd Ice Bucket Challenge

Martin-cropped-coverMartin’s just chillin’

Martin Shepherd’s mum-in-law (or mother if you prefer) has MS and he decided to raise some funds for MS Auckland. With the help of other staff and students from the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Education, Martin received a rude awakening when ice cold water was poured over him.

“All for a good cause” said Martin as he silently but theatrically screamed at the reality of ice cold water being poured over him buy the highest bidder on the day. We were delighted that so many people wanted to support Martin and his ‘ ice bucket’ endeavour raised over $800. Well done and a huge thanks from us all here at MS Auckland.
