On September 12th we will hold our 5th annual Grape Day 5K. This is a fun walk, stroll, jog, or run. Whatever your pleasure. I kind of do all of the above.
This year I have set a personal goal to raise $5,000 on behalf of Escondido Sunrise Rotary and The Multiple Sclerosis Society Pacific South Coast Chapter. I plan to do this by matching every dollar that is raised on this page. Please help me to reach this lofty goal. Any size donation is greatly appreciated. Please read below for more infomation about the event and where the money goes.
Multiple sclerosis destroys connections. It disconnects the mind from the body and people from each other. This event has committed a significant amount of their proceeds to the Multiple Sclerosis Society Pacific South Coast Chapter Each.
Rotary is the longest active service organization with over 1.2 million members from more than 200 countries. Through their motto Service Above Self, Rotarians truly help make our local communities grow and prosper.
I am asking you to support me because this is a cause that is meaningful to me. 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. 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.
Your Funds Go a Long Way!
• 40% goes to the Multiple Sclerosis Society Pacific Coast Chapter. 82% of every dollar we donate goes directly to research.
• 60% goes to Escondido Sunrise Rotary Club for distribution and use on Rotarian projects such as feeding homeless Veterans, Senior Citizen care packages, handicap access cabins, international projects and much more.
• 0% goes to administrative, overhead etc.
Please support me!
Your gift helps provide local programs and services for people affected by MS, and funds cutting-edge research, putting us closer to realizing our promise to STOP MS in its tracks, RESTORE lost function and END MS forever. Ending MS means no one will hear the words, "You have MS" ever again. Every dollar counts!
