 2014 MS Walk!

On Sunday, April 6, 2014, I will once again participate in the Southern California MS Walk as Team Captain for the Northrop Grumman Los Angeles MS Walk Team, as well as the Northrop Grumman Team to walk in the Long Beach MS Walk on 26 April 2014.  

2013 was a great year for the Northrop Grumman Teams and for my personal fundraising efforts. The NG Los Angeles Team raised $41,479 coming in #2 in the rankings! The Long Beach Team raised $13,915 (twice as much as we did in 2012) coming in #1  and our Palmdale Team raised $13,628making a grand total of $69,022 for all three teams.  With the help from many of you I have been on the Top 100 Fundraisers list for the past 11 years. For 2013, I came in #2 among ALL walkers in California and Nevada!  Since 2002, Northrop Grumman has been sponsoring our Los Angeles, Long Beach and Antelope Valley teams and in those 10 years our teams have raised over $519,000 dollars!!!!

This year my personal goal is to raise OVER $22,000. 

 Many of you know my story and connection to MS -- for those who don't here it is!

In 1990 my girlfriend Robin was diagnosed with MS.  My first thought was--How do I fix this? I soon realized I couldn't fix her MS, but I could focus my energy into something that would raise money so others could work on finding a cure.  That year I walked in my first MS Walk with a group of 5 friends and we called our team the Walkin Robins.  24 years later we are still walking and we are now sponsored by Northrop Grumman.  I'm inspired by Robin, and the many others I know with MS, to continue my fundraising efforts and to encourage others to put their energy into making a difference.

 How Can You Help Fight MS?

You can help by making a pledge, either on line by clicking on the Donate to Debbie! button, or by sending a check made payable to "National MS Society" and mail it to me.  I will send you my address via email.

I don't ask for your support so I can win a prize from MS for my fundraising efforts. I decline to accept the prize so the money can go back to MS. Your support in helping to find a cure for MS is the only prize I'm interested in.

Check back often to watch my progress and the Northrop Grumman teams progress toward reaching our goal. 

 With Love and Appreciation,
Debbie S.
