THE STORY:

Both sides of my family have been affected by MS. Please consider donating as I run to raise funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. 

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis 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. 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 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.

About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society

The Society mobilizes people and resources so that everyone affected by multiple sclerosis can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever.

To fulfill this mission, the Society funds cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education, collaborates with MS organizations around the world, and provides services designed to help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. Last year alone, through our comprehensive nationwide network, the Society devoted $122.2 million to help more than one million individuals connect to the people, information and resources they need. To move closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $54 million to support more than 380 new and ongoing research projects around the world.

Early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can make a difference for people with multiple sclerosis. Learn about your options by talking to your health care professional and contacting the National MS Society at nationalMSsociety.org or 1-800-344-4867.

Your dollars are spent on programs and support services for people affected by multiple sclerosis and MS- related research. Your generous contributions and fundraising efforts move research closer to a cure and help people with MS and their loved ones move their lives forward. Your efforts to raise:

• $25 will help to send much-needed information to people newly diagnosed with MS and their families.

• $100 will provide cooling garments and aids for daily living to maximize independence.

• $200 will help to purchase a rolling safety walker for those with mobility impairment.

• $300 will help purchase a portable ramp to enhance accessibility of a home or automobile.

• $500 will provide Emergency Financial Assistance for rent assistance or to prevent utility shut-offs for people with MS so they can remain independent in their homes.

• $1,200 will help cover the cost of respite care or home-health aids.

• $2,000 will provide a scholarship to help a young person affected by MS pursue a college education.
