From the editor: it’s great to be back


It’s great to be back. This is our first edition since 2 April, and we have missed being able to produce a weekly magazine for you.

When the infamous COVID-19 hit hard, we, like many businesses, set ourselves up to work from home and spent the past five weeks building up a new-look website to complement the print publication.

During my time at home, I managed to find a balance of work and exercise – it could’ve gone either way given how much I like to eat – and settled into a good routine.

I can’t remember the last time I saw so many people out exercising, and you’ll no doubt see even more this month as participants raise much-needed funds for multiple sclerosis (MS).

The May 50K, a virtual fitness challenge that is highly interactive, has already raised more than $3 million for research to support the 25,600 Australians who have been diagnosed with MS.

This week’s cover star, Kate Roberts, is one of them.

The highest fundraiser in the nation in the inaugural event last year, Kate will again raise funds by walking around her local park with her trusty sidekick, Nitro.
