Why We Fight MS

Having multiple sclerosis means that you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are different, and devastating, for everyone - the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day.

Why I Chose to Participate

This year I've joined forces with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to help support a number of friends and colleagues who are living with MS. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with a diagnosis occurring every hour in this country, it’s time to act. Diagnosis is most common between the ages of 20 and 50, and individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability.

Why You Should Sponsor Me

Help me help those with MS by making a donation today.  To help raise funds, I will be participating in the City to Shore Ride at the end of September, riding my bike from Philadelphia to Ocean City, NJ.  I will also be organizing a Happy Hour on September 12th where you can donate in person.  If you would rather donate your time, I am helping to organize a Day of Service at the end of October for someone living with MS.  The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from this event to support cutting edge research projects, as well as provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we can do something about multiple sclerosis, because donations to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society are helping to change the world right now, we are getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."
