Walk MS: Columbia 2017

MS Walkie Talkies

 My goal—a world free of MS.

I've formed a team for Walk MS—a charity walk that is changing the lives of people like me, people who live with Multiple Sclerosis.  Walk MS helps fuel progress toward a world free of MS. I'd love your generous support as we prepare for this incredible experience.

 I was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis (MS) on April 17, 2014 and it was a day that changed my life forever.  What is multiple sclerosis?  MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.  MS is different for everyone, and that makes it all the more challenging to solve. 

The first Walk MS event was in 1988, and since then more than $920 million has been raised for research and programs to improve the lives of people living with MS. Today, there are treatments where there weren't any before, and the dream of ending MS is becoming a reality. But there is still so much to do.

That's why I'm walking. The money raised will drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and guarantee a supportive community for those who need it most. This cause is really important to me, so I hope you can do your part to help end MS forever.

About MS

When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by MS. Symptoms of MS range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.
