Participating in my 1st MS Read-a-Thon

Throughout August I am taking a magical quest filled with adventure and mystery…and it’s all for one incredible cause. I am reading as many books as I can in August to raise funds for kids who have a parent living with multiple sclerosis. Money raised through the MS Readathon will help fund vital support services, like special Family Camps. These camps provide an opportunity for kids who have a parent affected by MS to learn more about MS, bond with other kids and have fun with their family. Thank you for supporting my MS Readathon adventure!

Amazing work, Hazel. When i was 10 I did the MS readathon and told all my sponsors that i planned to read 100 books. They all laughed then when I did most it then refused to party and i got in MEGA BIG TROUBLE for not having all the pledged money to hand. Now always donate whenever i see a kid doing the readathon AND I ALWAYS PAY THE MONEY!!!!
