Anna Magennis is indeed an inspirational young lady who was a guest speaker at our Annual Awards Luncheon. Anna addressed the audience comprising Primary and Secondary pupils, teachers and headmasters and other guests including Action MS Youth Patron Connor Phillips.
Anna is a year 13 student at St Patrick’s Academy, Dungannon and she re counted how much she had enjoyed taking part in the Walk for MS when she was a student in year 9 and how then she had no idea that in a few short years she herself would be diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Her vibrancy, honesty, confidence and ability to relate to the audience was captivating.
Anna stressed the importance of fundraising for Action MS and the difference the support and friendship she has been shown has made to her life. She encouraged the schools to continue to get involved in the Walk for MS 2015 programme which is a fun day out while at the same time supporting a great cause.
Action MS is delighted to announce that Anna Magennis is to be its first School Ambassador!
The Action MS strap line ‘A little Action can go a long way’ is certainly very true in relation to Anna.
