I've joined the movement to end multiple sclerosis by participating in MS Slugfest 2012! On Saturday, Aug. 4, I will be joining 48 teams and hundreds of volunteers playing in a charity softball tournament to benefit the National MS Society. Between now and Slugfest, I plan to update this page frequently so you can follow my progress. So please visit this page often!
More than 20,000 individuals and their families live with MS in Illinois, and more than 400,000 people are affected by MS across the country. MS stops people from moving. People who live with MS must overcome challenges everyday: to walk; to have energy to go to the store; to have the will power not to give up. That is why I'm challenging myself to play in Slugfest--on their behalf.
You can help make a difference. Please donate! You can make a donation to my fundraising campaign by clicking the Make a Gift link, just below the thermometer. If you prefer to write a check, please contact me and I will provide my address. (But please bear in mind, it costs the National MS Society less money if you donate online!)
If you want to join my Slugfest team, just let me know. It's going to be an awe-inspiring adventure, and I'd love you to be a part of it!
Thanks for visiting my Personal Page, and thanks for considering being part of the movement to end MS!
