I Can Make a Difference
Moving toward a cure
Challenge Walk MS supports the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's mission of mobilizing people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. In Wisconsin more than 10,000 children, women and men are diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
The National MS Society helps more people who have MS and funds more MS research than any private, voluntary MS organization in the world.
I participate in the MS Challenge Walk because as a Mother I want to support my son. Dylan was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2009. He has not allowed MS to stop him from pursuing his dreams and reaching his goals. Dylan received his BSN this fall and plans to continue his education to be a Nurse Practitioner. He is a Father of 2 energetic boys, Eli and Henry; and Dylan and Annie are expecting their third child in December. Dylan works full time on a Medical Surgical Unit in Champaign,IL. His favorite sport has become flyfishing. His passion for flyfishing is shared by his Father and they are planning a trip to Montana in September.
I know that Dylan has benefited by the medical research done by the National MS Society. I also know the importance of the love and support that he receives from family and friends. Today there is no cure for MS but with continued research I BELIEVE there will be in the future.
Why You Should Sponsor Me
This event is a challenge - and an opportunity - for everyone involved, participants and donors alike. With commitment to this cause, we can all be part of a historic undertaking. The funds raised from the Challenge Walk MS will not only support research for a cure, but also provide programs which address the needs of hundreds of thousands of people living with MS right now. Because we choose to walk for those who sometimes can't. Because we choose to donate to the Challenge Walk MS, we are getting ever closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."
