We were excited to receive some WrapMeCool wraps to trial as a family — not just any family, but a family of five who happen to be travelling around Australia in a caravan.
With three little people on board — aged 5, 3 ½ and 2 — it can be pretty hard to stay cool in hot climates. With our WrapMeCools we are instantly cooled wherever we go. We use them at the beach, on our hikes, while we’re in the car, even while we’re sleeping!
The great thing is they can be wet with any water source; beaches, rivers, creeks, even a puddle if that’s all you’ve got!
Hello, I’m Sophie and I live in Australia.
I was diagnosed with secondary progressive MS in 2009 while training for my first half-marathon and working as a Registered Nurse. Like many of us, I find managing heat to be a huge challenge. Heat causes me distress and really saps my energy.
Now I have several wraps in different colours and I laugh because my biggest problem is to choose which one looks best! They are definitely my secret weapon for dealing with the heat because they make the intolerable, tolerable and allow me to get out and enjoy my life with dignity.
You might be shocked to learn that Canada has in excess of 100 000 people living with MS — estimated to be the highest rate of any country in the world!
Like many people, we are personally touched by the effect of MS, so we jumped at the opportunity to join WAMS in their fundraising efforts. We are excited to be attending their annual networking luncheon in Vancouver, and delighted to have donated WrapMeCools for the silent auction.
