MS Auckland see workers take stairs

Nick Kearns from Auckland University's UniServices, left, Jaimee Maha from Auckland Council and Ingrid Minett from Multiple Sclerosis Auckland are gearing up for Lift Free February.

Jaimee Maha will be finding it a bit of a hard slog to get to work next month.

She's ditching the elevator in favour of the stairs as part of Lift-Free February to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis Auckland.

Her pledge will see her and her team trekking up and down 25 flights of the Auckland Council building on Albert St on a daily basis.

Office workers will be sweating it out across the Auckland CBD this February to raise funds for Multiple sclerosis (MS).

The campaign was launched last year by former council staff member Nick Kearns and his colleagues.

The Titirangi resident is now working for Auckland University's UniServices and has created another team in his new office.

Both Kearns and Maha have close relatives with the disease.

"Nick and I have seen firsthand how MS can change your life and how important it is to receive the kind of quality support that Multiple Sclerosis Auckland provide," Maha says.

"This campaign is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness and much needed funds for Aucklanders living with MS. But most of all, It's also a whole a lot of fun and a great way to get fit!"

Local businesses from across the Auckland's CBD have donated prizes to the campaign, including yoga classes at the Yoga Academy, dinner at Depot and Deco Eatery in Titirangi and a stay at SkyCity.

"I've also found a lot of people saying MS is close to their hearts too. A lot of people are indirectly or directly affected by MS," Kearns says.

"It's great, we can band together as a sort of little community and show our support."

Multiple Sclerosis Auckland general manager Ingrid Minett says her organisation reaches more than 4000 people throughout Auckland.

They offer a wide range of services, such as home visits by field works and hydrotherapy classes in pools through Auckland, including Friday sessions at West Wave.

"Having a diagnosis of MS is life changing. With the right level of information and support people with MS can live a full and active life," she says.

Visit and search "liftfreefeb2016" to start a team or make a donation.
