Portland Fire Gets Muddy for Multiple Sclerosis

10 Comments

Last weekend, the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society put on a Warrior-Style event called the Mud Run MS at the Sherwood Forest Equestrian Center.

What set this event apart from most obstacle-course type runs was the distance. The Mud Run MS was 6.2 miles (10k) and had 30 different obstacles. The mud/water depth was different from each obstacle to the next, mostly ranging from one to four feet deep. All water/mud-based obstacles over two feet had lifeguards on duty.

The Portland Hosedraggers successfully finish the race, running across the finish line as a team after running and conquering obsticles for just over an hour and forty minutes

A team of seven Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) civilian employees, friends, firefighters, and Chiefs wouldn’t wait to participate in the run, signing up for the event months in advance. 

  

PF&R Battalion Chief Terry Murno competes biennially at the World Firefighters Games, a major sporting event for firefighters across the globe.  Munro has placed in “The Toughest Firefighter Alive competition,” an event testing firefighters in a range of firefighting specific competitions in order to discover who the "Toughest Firefighter Alive" is. Even so, Munro was challenged with the Mud Run’s military style course.

Munro notes, “The Mud Run is a great way to raise funds to support MS research and services.”

PF&R’s team finished the event in just over one hour, forty minutes, and raised $600 for the MS Society on top of registration fees. The team is excited to expand membership and better their finishing time and fundraising amounts next year.

More About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease. Learn more on National Multiple Sclerosis official website at http://www.nationalmssociety.org.

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in October 2011, at the age of 44. I woke up one morning with numbness in my lower back and legs, I couldn't feel my feet touching the floor. I saw my doctor and had an MRI to see if I had a disc problem, it was negative and she told me she feared MS. I was sent to a neurologist, had two more MRIs, and was told that night that I have four lesions on my spine MS. I tried every shots available but nothing worked. In 2015, my neurologist and I decided to go with natural treatment and was introduced to Mayaka Natural Clinic natural organic MS Herbal formula, i had a total decline of symptoms with this treatment, the numbness, terrible back pains, stiffness, body weakness, double vision, depression and others has subsided. Visit Mayaka Natural Clinic official website www. mayakanaturalclinic. com This treatment is a breakthrough for all suffering from Multiple sclerosis, i am strong again!

I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 1 month after I turned 50. My grandma is 96 and had it since she was in her 20s. I have been on WORLDHERBSCLINIC MS HERBAL FORMULA, the first TWO MONTHS was daily and now I am on 3 times a week. It has made a tremendous difference for me. The fatigue never gets to me again.

Been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2015, and I was a woman of 50. They put me on Rebif which I took until 2017 and was switched to Copaxone. I had two relapses on Rebif, none so far on Copaxone. I do notice my balance was getting worse, and my memory, as well as erectile dysfunction and spasms’ had no choice to sick for other solution and I was introduce to multivitamincare .org which I purchase the MS herbal formula from the org, the herbal supplement has successfully  get rid of my multiple sclerosis and reversed all symptoms after using the herbs as the Dr said , this is almost a miracle and do believe multivitamincare .org herbal cure will be recognize globally because am sure the world are yet to see their wonderful work.

Four years ago, I went numb from the waist down. After quite a few MRI’s, spinal tap, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I was on Avenox for almost 2 years, i had 1 year of monthly steroids IV, had to stop due to hip pain. Through my physiotherapist i learnt about a MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS HERBAL TREATMENT from K.H.C (Kykuyu Health Clinic) and their success rate with the treatment, i immediately started on the MS treatment, i experienced decline in major symptoms including hand tremor, back pain, difficulty walking, muscle paralysis and weakness, uncomfortable tingling and burning, fatigue, urinary retention,double vision, slurred speech difficulty swallowing, numbness. Visit www. kykuyuhealthclinic. com. I knew that a positive attitude is everything and to just believe, I’m in control of my life again….

I had a sudden onset of cold sores and a new one was appearing each day. I was on primary immunosuppressant I noticed my body just can't fight the virus on its own. After five days of treatment and no success I suspected herpes I went for test and it was confirmed. God was my strength I met a doctor for treatment. He gave me Dr Utu's contact. I contacted him immediately, This medication was far amazing that within 24-48 hrs the blisters were crusting over. The swelling and redness was decreasing as well. I was on four weeks herpes medication which I completed before going for test. I went for herpes test and then again back to my doctor who confirmed me herpes negative it was really like a dream. What a relief! Feel Free to contact Dr Utu Email:- drutuherbalcure@gmail.com OR WhatsApp :- +2347032718477

I still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to Herbalist Dr. Kham. After being diagnosed with Herpes Virus 2 months ago, I was given so many health prescriptions and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until I found testimonies of Great Dr. Kham online when I was researching on a Blog, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him but I later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started. the remedies for my health. Thank God, I was cured from Herpes Virus by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that Herpes Virus can be cured, From the bottom of my heart I'm truly grateful and I pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support, You can Email him via email dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com or for easy and fast communication, Here is his Website https://herbalistdrkhamcaregiver.simdif.com/ You can also call or add him on WhatsApp with this mobile number +2348159922297, One thing I love most about Dr. Kham is he is a good man with kind hearted,  He is very polite with his patience, Everything he told me was what he did and his herbal medicine are very affordable
