EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Final week. I can't run but but will be out to cheer on my teammates. I am proud of endless miles of training my teammates have done, especially the first time marathoners. Good job and good luck on Sunday! The fundraiser has done well and will go to great research. I am truly grateful for everyone's support.
The mission of TISCH MS is to make big, meaningful changes for people suffering from MS through research in progressive MS, the cause of MS and stem cell based repair strategies.
Thank for your continued support,
Armistead Williams MD

Join/Support Team Tisch MS!
Tisch MSRCNY was selected by New York Road Runners (NYRR) as a charity community partner of the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon and is building a dedicated team of runners, including physicians, nurses, patients, and friends of the Tisch Multiple Sclerosis Research Center of New York who have committed themselves to running and raising funds.
We have set an ambitious goal of $75,000 to help support our cutting-edge research program including the development of biomarkers, understanding disease mechanisms, and identification of a trigger that might cause the disease in addition to being the only MS center in the US that is conducting an FDA-approved Phase I stem cell clinical trial using neuroprogenitors that has the potential to repair the damage caused by MS and reverse disability.
If you are already registered for the NYC Marathon, you are welcome to join our team! Please contact Kimberly Woodward at email@example.com.
If you can support our team by making a tax-deductible donation, please do! Your contribution will make an impact on the progress we are making in understanding MS in order to find the cause of and cure for the disease.
