About MS:  Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms. Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and it stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, a disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms 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 moving us closer to a world free of MS.

You can show your support in many ways by dontaing money, volunteering your time, recruiting your friends, asking others for donations, organize a fundraiser, host a party asking for donations at the door, organize a garage sale and more! Whatever your strength may be we need YOU to help win this fight against MS!!

Can't make it the day of the walk? Still support us by joing the team as a virtual walker and contribute in whatever way you are able to.
