Clair Price is a fit and active 34-year-old mum of two young children. She also has MS.
The Worrigee woman was diagnosed with the disease in 2012 at 27-years-old. Her eldest daughter had not long turned one.
Clair said she doesn't 'fit the picture' for what people often think MS sufferers look like, and she's out to raise awareness.
"People don't realise that young people get diagnosed with MS too, they just think of people in wheelchairs," she said.
Clair is taking part in The May 50k which will see thousands lace up the joggers and run or walk 50 kilometres throughout May to raise vital funds for MS research.
Logging her five kilometre morning walks on her Fitbit, Clair is well on her way to hitting the 50 kilometre target, and her goal of $500. She's currently at $243.
Clair takes regular medication to treat her MS, however there's still no cure. She's hopes with continual fundraising, it won't be far off.
"To me, I'm one of the lucky ones that can keep fit and active but in the future, if my health deteriorates, we really need a cure," she said.
Clair first started seeking medical help after she began losing sensation in her fingertips and hands. A numbing sensation from the waist down, often brought on when she became warm from exercising, followed.
An eight-month battle to have her condition diagnosed ensued.
"It was a battle to get doctors to believe me," she said.
" After a lot of tests they kept trying to shrug it off and I finally saw a neurologist who diagnosed it."
While MS is a lifelong diagnosis, Clair hasn't let it hold her back. Last month she competed in a fitness competition she'd spent many months training for.

"I want to show people that MS isn't always a burden - it's been my motivation to prove that it won't stop me from reaching my dreams," she said.
She thanked her husband, Daniel Price. "He's my number one support person. He's been by my side through thick and thin. I cant thank him enough for his incredible love and support."
Clair encouraged anyone living with MS to reach out to the Shoalhaven MS Support and Social group on Facebook. Donate at themay50k.org/fundraisers/clairprice/the-may-50k-walk
