Collaroy couple awarded highest MS Australia accolade

20 November 2013

Two fundraisers from Sydney’s Northern Beaches have been formally recognised for their years of service improving the lives of people affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Carol Langsford (OAM) and Roy Langsford (OAM), founders of the Trish MS Research Foundation have been awarded the John Studdy Award for 2013 – the most prestigious honour from MS Australia – in recognition of their ongoing contribution to MS research.

Carol and Roy have helped to strengthen the MS research sector in Australia through their grassroots charity the Trish Foundation, formed in memory of their daughter Trish who died from MS in 2002.

Since that time they have single-handedly raised nearly $3 million for MS research through a variety of events and initiatives.
