Walk MS: Knoxville 2016

Team Matthew

Our goal—a world free of MS.

Team Matthew was formed four years ago in honor of Matthew Tieng.  Matthew, a 12-year-old who was diagnosed with Remitting, Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 8. Since his diagnosis, we decided to form a team in his honor to raise awareness about MS that it not only affect adults, but also children.  In the past four years Team Matthew has raised more than ten thousand dollars to help with research in finding cure for MS, hoping that Matthew will eventually be MS free.

We are inviting you to come and join Team Matthew that Never Gives Up as we walk to Win the Race and Beat MS!

-Knoxville Walk MS 2016: Saturday, April 30, 2016, 9AM registration - 10AM Walk starts at Sequoyah Hills Park, 1400 Cherokee Blvd.

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 we're walking. We've set an ambitious goal because we know with support from people like you, we will have a great chance at reaching it. 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 us, so we hope you can do your part to help end MS forever.

Will you help us reach our goal by donating what you can?

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.
